How was a static IP assigned in the FortiGate 60e?
I've inherited a rack system with a Fortigate 60e that was setup by some other company. I am trying to understand how they created a static IP ( 192.168.1.51 ) for a raspberry pi video camera device sitting in the site. When I go to "Addresses" I see this for the pi:
And under Addresses I see this is where they assigned the static IP:
However, the confusing part is I don't see where Camera 1 points to pi003? If I edit the Camera 1 or pi003 I see no reference to each other?
They don't really relate to each other. They are just logical objects representing two different things: one is an object referencing a Layer 3 IP address and the other is an object referencing a Layer 2 MAC address. In this case they are belonging to the same device but there is no real connection on the FGT.
Correct. I am mainly interested to know how to assign static ips to some devices in the center. Do I go to DHCP Monitor -> Right mouse click on the device -> "Create DHCP reservation" -> "OK" ? I want the IP to be permanent even after a complete power outage/reboot of the system. See below:
