Not being able to access through https to the Fortigate GUI

I just download a VM machine of Fortigate 7.0.2 (I tried with 7.0.1 also) and i cant access with https to the forti GUI.

 

I checked the interface and is perfectly configured: with "allowaccess ping https ssh fgfm"

I also tried to to access with ssh and works perfectly fine.

Even i tried to configure the interface and add "http" and worked too!(but i want https not http)

 

The Chrome error that appears to me is the typical:

[ This site cant be reached ---- "ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED" ]

 

(i also tried to disable the windows firewall, but nothing works)

 

Its a new and default Fortigate VM System, so i dont know why doesn't work.

Anyone knows what is happening? Thanks!

Hi Ash1

 

I am thinking you could be using the evaluation license. Evaluation license have limited functionality and it doesn't even allow HTTPS administrative access. You can do a "get system status" to see if you are on evaluation license. If yes, do upload the license into FGT in order to have HTTPS administrative access. Do refer to https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortigate-private-cloud/6.0.0/fortigate-vm-on-vmware-esxi/504166/... for more information.

Yeah, i already tried all of that and didn't work. Most of the recomendations on that post are for an already working server(i.e: check https on port 443...)

But my Fortigate is literally a default/new VM, so most of the settings are OK/default.

 

Thanks Anyway!

Is there any way to get a license code for student/research purposes?
