Can't remember default IP for fortinet fortigate 30e

I just reset my Fortinet - Fortigate 30e to default settings or factory settings.


It's been over a year since I last done this from what I recall and can't remember the default IP login for my Fortigate 30e.


Anyone know of the default Fortigate 30e IP address?


All FGTs/FWiFis should have by default. Smaller models like xxD/E has it configured on a hard- or soft-switch, which aggregate all internal ports.


Those did not work.


I used to be able to login just fine using the IP. Just can't remember the original IP after factory reset.


Thanks for the help though.


Then it's not factory reset. Besides, by default DHCP server is enabled with the subnet so if you hook up your laptop you should pull an IP like I would just run Wireshark on the laptop what comes out especially after you power-cycle it.


hmm if you happen to have one connect a serial console cable, login with factory default.

Then enter "config system interface ?" and the fgt will list you all its interfaces with ips in the console.

That's probably the most easy way ;)
