Connecting to the FortiGate-VM

To connect to the FortiGate-VM:
  1. Open the publicip- resource and copy the IP address that Azure assigned.
  2. In a web browser, connect to the IP address using HTTPS on port 8443. You can also use an SSH client on port 22.
  3. The system displays a warning that the certificate is not trusted. This is expected since the FortiGate-VM is using a self-signed certificate. If desired, replace the certificate with a signed certificate.
  4. Sign in with the credentials specified in the Azure template parameters.
  5. If you chose a BYOL deployment, you must upload a license and reboot the FortiGate-VM before continuing. See Registering and downloading your license.
