Port forwarding (Video)

Watch more videos

In this video, you will learn how to use port forwarding to limit access to an internal server.

By using virtual IPs to configure port forwarding on your FortiGate unit, you can allow remote connections with a server behind the FortiGate’s firewall, but only through ports that you choose. This example allows TCP port 80 for HTTP traffic, port 22 for SSH traffic, and port 21 for FTP traffic.

The recipe for this video is available here.
