How to verify FortiGuard connectivity

How to verify FortiGuard connectivity

You can verify the FortiGuard connectivity in the License Information widget under System > Dashboard > Status. When FortiGate is connected to FortiGuard, a green check mark appears for available FortiGuard services.

From CLI, execute ping “service.fortiguard.net” and “update.fortiguard.net”.

 

Sample output:

FG100D# execute ping service.fortiguard.net

PING guard.fortinet.net (208.91.112.196): 56 data bytes
