(Connectivity test) Configuring a FortiGate firewall policy

  1. Let's test if the configuration synchronizes between the two FortiGate instances by creating a new incoming firewall policy. Go to Policy & Objects > IP4 Policy, then click Create New. Enter the policy name, specify incoming and outgoing ports, source, destination, and service. In this example, all is selected for all options. Select security policies as desired, then click OK.

    You have created the policy.

  2. Log into FortiGate B by connecting to its management port at https://18.216.80.123 in a browser. Your IP address is different. The username is admin. If HA works, the password is the same as FortiGate A. Otherwise, the login password is FortiGate B’s instance ID.

    The same new firewall policy has automatically been created on FortiGate B.
