Connect to the FortiGate VM Web-based Manager

When you have configured the port1 IP address and netmask, launch a web browser and enter the IP address that you configured for port1. At the login page, enter the username admin and password field and select Login. The default password is no password. The Web-based Manager will appear with an Evaluation License dialog box.

Due to low encryption on the FortiGate side of the connection, some modern browsers will not allow the connection. If that is the case, the adjusting of the browser settings is unlikely to make a difference. There are two options:

  • Use FTP or TFTP to apply the license
  • Make sure that the interface on the port being accessed has been configured to allow HTTP/HTTPS access
