Fortigate 30E ADSL2+

Hi !,

 

I'am french and I'am sorry I do not speak very well English.

 

I have a Fortigate 30E in 6.0.4 release. I would like to remove my operator modem to replace it with my Fortigate.

I have a ADSL2+ line with French Operator. I have a phone jack with an adsl filter and a RJ11 to RJ45 cable connector.

 

It's possible to connect the RJ45 on the wan port of my fortigate ?

 

I have the information about my ADSL line (IP, Gateway, Protocole...)

 

When I connect the cable rj45 on the wan port of my fortigate, no led flashes, everything must be configured for the port to flash?

 

Look at the pictures,

FortiGate 30E doesn't terminate any ADSL circuits. It terminates only Ethernet. If you want to handle IPs delivered by the ADSL provider, putting the ADSL modem/router to bridge mode (modem mode) so that the device just convert the signal format from ADSL to Ethernet.

Ok, that's what I thought, unfortunately the operators general public blocks the passage in bridge mode, I will just NAT all ports to my Fortigate.
