Change the protected network’s default route


This recipe is part of the process of deploying FortiGate for OCI. Note OCI is only supported by FortiOS 5.4.8. See below for the rest of the recipes in this process:

  1. Create a virtual cloud network and public-facing subnets
  2. Create a security list
  3. Create a route table for the internal network
  4. Create internal network subnet
  5. Obtain the deployment image file and place it in your bucket
  6. Import the image
  7. Launch the FortiGate instance
  8. Attach a storage to FortiGate
  9. Access the FortiGate
  10. Create the second vNIC
  11. Configure the second vNIC on the FortiGate
  12. Change the protected network’s default route
  13. [Connectivity test] Configure FortiGate firewall policies and virtual IPs


  1. Once the vNIC is created with the private IP address, it is available to be selected to as the default gateway in the route table configuration. Go to the route tables and edit the route rules for the internal network subnet. For all destinations, select Private IP as the Target Type, and enter the FortiGate second vNIC’s private IP address.
