GUI and CLI
Now in FortiGate, there are two places that IPS can be enabled, in a firewall policy and in an interface policy. In the firewall policy implementation, IPS sensor can be configured in both CLI and GUI. When adding an IPS sensor to an interface policy it must be done through the CLI. There is no GUI input window for the “Interface Policy”. There is however, a DoS Policy section in the GUI.
