Additional Information

The following section is for those options that require additional explanation.

auth-blackout-time <seconds>

When a firewall authentication attempt fails five times within one minute, the IP address (that is the source of the authentication attempts) is denied access for this period of time in seconds. Set the value between 0-3600 (or no denial to one hour). The default is set to When a firewall authentication attempt fails five times within one minute, the IP address (that is the source of the authentication attempts) is denied access for this period of time in seconds. Set the value between 0-3600 (or no denial to one hour). The default is set to 0.


auth-ca-cert <ca-cert>

If the built-in certificate is not used here, specify the CA certificate to use instead.


auth-cert <cert>

HTTPS server certificate for policy authentication. Select from built-in defaults or custom certificates. The built-in Fortinet_Factory certificate is set by default.


auth-http-basic {enable | disable}

Enable or disable (by default) support for HTTP basic authentication for identity-based firewall policies. HTTP basic authentication usually causes a browser to display a pop-up authentication window instead of an authentication web page. An example to use this would be for web browsers on mobile devices, as some may only support HTTP basic authentication. Enable or disable (by default) support for HTTP basic authentication for identity-based firewall policies. HTTP basic authentication usually causes a browser to display a pop-up authentication window instead of an authentication web page. An example to use this would be for web browsers on mobile devices, as some may only support HTTP basic authentication.


auth-invalid-max <failed-attempts>

Maximum number of failed authentication attempts before the client is blocked. Set the value between 1-100. The default is set to 5.


auth-lockout-duration <seconds>

Period of time in seconds that login lockout lasts for. Set the value between 1-4294967295 (or one second to 136+ years), or 0 for no lockout.


auth-lockout-threshold <login-attempts>

Number of login attempts before a login lockout is triggered. Set the value between 1-10. The default is set to 3.


auth-portal-timeout <minutes>

Period of time in minutes before the firewall Captive Portal authentication timeout requires the user to authenticate again. Set the value between 1-30 (or one minute to half an hour). The default is set to 3.


auth-secure-http {enable | disable}

Enable or disable (by default) redirecting HTTP user authentication to more secure HTTPS.


auth-timeout <minutes>

Period of time in minutes before the firewall user authentication timeout requires the user to authenticate again. Set the value between 1-1440 (or one minute to one day). To improve security, it's recommended to keep the authentication timeout at the default value of 5.


auth-timeout-type {idle-timeout | hard-timeout | new-session}

Type of authentication timeout.


auth-type {http | https | ftp | telnet}

Select the protocols that can be used for firewall policy authentication. Default is http https ftp telnet, which means firewall policy authentication can be done using HTTP, HTTPS, FTP or Telnet. You can remove protocols to limit the authentication options.


config auth-ports

A configuration method to set authentication ports and their authentication types. Edit to create new and configure the following entries below.


port <port>

Authentication port number. Set the value between  1-65535. The default is set to 1024.


radius-ses-timeout-act {hard-timeout | ignore-timeout}

RADIUS session timeout action.


type {http | https | ftp | telnet}

User authentication protocol support for firewall policy authentication for the port. User controls which protocols (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and/or TELNET) should support the authentication challenge. The default is set to http.
