Administration Guide

GUI overview

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

Connecting to the GUI

The FortiSandbox unit is configured and managed using the GUI. This topic covers connecting to the unit via the GUI.

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 an 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, enter the Password, and click Login.
