Power on your FortiGate VM

You can now proceed to power on your FortiGate VM. There are several ways to do this:

  • Select the name of the FortiGate VM you deployed in the inventory list and select Power on the virtual machine in the Getting Started tab.
  • In the inventory list, right-click the name of the FortiGate VM you deployed, and select Power > Power On.
  • Select the name of the FortiGate VM you deployed in the inventory list. Click the Power On button on the toolbar.

Select the Console tab to view the console. To enter text, you must click in the console pane. The mouse is then captured and cannot leave the console screen. As the FortiGate console is text-only, no mouse pointer is visible. To release the mouse, press Ctrl-Alt.
