Virtual Domains in Transparent mode

A VDOM in Transparent mode is installed between the internal network and the router. In this mode, the VDOM does not make any changes to IP addresses and only applies security scanning to traffic. When a VDOM is added to a network in Transparent mode, no network changes are required, except to provide the VDOM with a management IP address.

Each VDOM on a FortiGate can be configured for NAT/Route mode or Transparent mode, regardless of the operation mode of other VDOMs on the FortiGate. For more information about NAT/Route mode, see Virtual Domains in NAT/Route mode.
