Fortigate return to NAT mode from transparent mode

Hi,

If I wanted to return to NAT mode after configure the Fortigate in transparent mode with firewall policies, security policies, etc.. What are the steps?

Obviously remove the commands of transparent mode and assign ip addresses on interfaces. Other things?

 

Thanks

Hi,
 
Use the following procedure to switch the FortiGate unit from Transparent mode to
NAT/Route mode. When the FortiGate unit has changed to NAT/Route mode its
configuration resets to NAT/Route mode factory defaults.
1) Go to System > Status.
2)Select Change to NAT Mode.
3)Select NAT/Route in the operation mode list.
4)Select OK.
The FortiGate unit changes operation mode.
5)To reconnect to the web-based manager you must connect to the interface configured
Access through default for management access.
