Thanku @knagaraju for helping me out. Please find the output below after running above commands in CLI.output 1.pngOutput 2.png


Thank you for sharing.
Do you have PPP2 interface added in SD-WAN ?
If yes then I suggest you to open a TAC ticket to proceed on further troubleshooting on it.

Hi @knagaraju 

It is set to ppp2 as well. For your clarification I am attaching the screenshot for SD-WAN setting in my firewall. I raised the ticket as well. The ticket number is: 7514487SD wan1.pngSD wan2.png

I am facing the same exact issue. Was your issue resolved? If so, what was the resolution?


You cannot route APIPA addresses ( outside the local link. If you need this access then change the subnet to something that can route properly like RFC1918 addressing with appropriate SNAT configured on the policy.

The incoming interface for this traffic is FortiLink not default.fortilink (_default) which is configurable only through the CLI. My advice is to create a policy through the CUI and then edit the source interface in the CLI.

What's the solutiuon to either allow the traffic or at least prevent the logging of it without turning off logging in policy 0/implicit?

(I tried doing the same as the OP here, but somehow policy 0 is still being cited, which is an inbound rule, but this traffic is in the traffic logs, are polluted with denials multiple times per minute)

I eneded up just turning it off :)

config system flan-cloud

(flan-cloud) # get
interval : 3

port : 443
status : enable

set status disable
