Newly created VPN Tunnel cannot be added in static route

Hi, I just created a new site-to-site VPN phase 1 and phase 2 on a Fortigate 60C.


When I go to Router > Static > Static Route > Create New > Device, there are only dmz, Internal, modem, wan1, wan2, ssl.root on the list. The new VPN isn't there.


Any idea?

Did you create the tunnel in interface mode? If you failed to do that, you won't be able to add that route.

Right. I was too careless. Thanks for the tips.
