I'm attempting to access an old FortiGate 90E that I had setup. I hooked up the console cable and was able to access it via putty using my old credentials. I attempted to use the command found in some documentation.
I'm pretty certain the firewall used to be configured so that someone could access the GUI through one of the ports on the firewall, but I cannot remember which port it could be. Is there a way for me to list the IPs each port is assigned to? What is the best way for me to access this firewall without messing up the configuration to much?
Thank you for this information. I was able to get the port # using the second command you referenced, but the other commands do not appear to be working. Here is the terminal.
What else could I try?
Another note. I'm currently accessing the firewall through PuTTY and the cli input is very laggy. I need to repeatedly press keys to actually get the text to input. Entering commands into the terminal is not smooth at all. Is this normal?
If you look for the GUI access you need to find the IP of the interface and check that HTTP/HTTPS access is enabled. You would access GUI over the port 8443. Try https://fortigateIP:8443 Normally, when you access the FG from LAN, the management IP of the FortiGate is the Gateway iP received by the PC. This may also help:#diag ip address list

Is SNMP-INDEX the port #? I think I've identified which port is being used for access. I've included the picture below. I need to assign that port to a new IP address. How do I do that? I want to assign this to 10.0.0.18/24
do you happen to recall if your admin user has full access permission? It sounds a bit as if your admin might be restricted, which would limit your visibility on the GUI. Try this: get system interface -> this should definitely show output if your admin user has permission to view/edit interfaces get system admin -> same as above, should show output if your admin user has permission to view/edit other admins
If you don't get any output like this either, then your admin is very likely to have restricted permissions and you would not regain full access to the FortiGate that way. In that case, you might have to look at the maintainer procedure: https://community.fortinet.com/t5/FortiGate/Technical-Tip-Reset-a-lost-admin-password-on-a-FortiGate... (this might be disabled on your FortiGate, and you might not be able to enable it depending on your privileges), or you might need to consider factoryresetting/wiping the unit and reinstalling firmware. That would include a loss of configuration, however.
As for PuTTY being laggy - your FortiGate is on an older version, and I don't know what is going on with it, but version 6.2.0 did have some bugs that could impact performance. You can run 'get system performance status' to have an idea of CPU/memory usage etc. You can run 'diagnose debug crashlog read' to get the crashlog and see if any processes are crashing constantly and impacting its performance
