FortiWAN IP MAC Mapping

IP MAC Mapping

Users can specify the IP-MAC table by classifying periods like peak hours and idle hours. Once the IP-MAC table is set up, a packet from a certain IP address can pass through FortiWAN only when its MAC address matches the table list and time period.

FortiWAN provides log mechanism to the IP MAC Mapping service, see “Log”.

E : Enable/Disable
When : Select the time period: busy hour, idle hour and all time. All time is defined in 24-hour

system. For details, refer to [System] -> [Busyhour Settings] (See “Busyhour Settings”).

IP Address : Enter the IP address of the network interface card.
MAC Address : Enter the MAC address of the network interface card.
L : Check it to activate the rule and record results in log file. Otherwise, the rule is inactive and data will not be stored.
