Administration Guide

GUI overview

The GUI is a user-friendly interface for configuring settings and managing the FortiSandbox unit. The GUI can be accessed from a web browser on any management computer.

Connecting to the GUI

The FortiSandbox unit is configured and managed using the GUI. This section will step you through connecting to the unit via the GUI.

To quickly locate a menu item, you can enter the term in the Search bar located at the top of the left side panel.

Information messages for certain pages will be displayed in the Message Bar located at the top of the right side panel. Messages will disappear after a few seconds.

To connect to the FortiSandbox GUI:
  1. Connect the port1 (administration) interface or any other administrative port set through the CLI command set admin-port to a management computer using the provided Ethernet cable.
  2. Configure the management computer to be on the same subnet as the internal interface of the FortiSandbox unit:
    1. Browse to Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings > Local Area Connection Properties > Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties. These directions may vary based on the version of your operating system.
    2. Change the IP address of the management computer to 192.168.0.2 and the network mask to 255.255.255.0.
  3. Start a supported web browser and browse to https://192.168.0.99.
  4. Type admin in the Name field, leave the Password field blank, and click Login.

    You can now proceed with configuring your FortiSandbox unit.

Note

If the network interfaces have been configured differently during installation, the URL and/or permitted administrative access protocols may no longer be in their default state.
