Enabling FDN updates and FortiGuard services

In the FortiManager GUI, the FortiGuard > Settings pane provides a central location for configuring and enabling your FortiManager system’s built-in FDS as an FDN override server.

By default, this option is enabled. After configuring FortiGuard and configuring your devices to use the FortiManager system as their FortiGuard server, you can view overall and per device statistics on FortiGuard service benefits.

In order to receive FortiGuard subscription updates, the FortiManager unit must have access to the Internet and be able to connect to a DNS server in order to resolve the following URLs:

  • fds1.fortinet.com: For AV and IPS updates
  • guard.fortinet.net: For web filtering and anti-spam updates
  • fqsvr.fortinet.net: For file query and GEIP DB updates
  • forticlient.fortinet.net: For FortiClient signature updates
