Local-In Policy Query

Hi all,


We are operating a pair of 100D Hardware Appliances (v6.2.3 build 1066 GA), running HA in an Active/Passive configuration.

I recently had cause to allow access on certain ports to the WAN interface of our appliances and I accomplished this using the Local-In Policy.

The action set for this rule was 'accept' and I'm wondering where I might view logs of this rule to verify it is working. Looking at the Local Traffic Log, the only 'accepts' I can see are Fortinet (Update Announcements).

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.


Best regards,

In the GUI, under Feature Visibility, enable "Local In Policy" (allows Local in policies to show up under Policy & Objects). For actual logging, in the CLI, set one or more options under: config log setting     set local-in-allow {enable | disable}   Enable/disable local-in-allow logging.     set local-in-deny-unicast {enable | disable}   Enable/disable local-in-deny-unicast logging.     set local-in-deny-broadcast {enable | disable}   Enable/disable local-in-deny-broadcast logging.     set local-out {enable | disable}   Enable/disable local-out logging. end Don't have access to a fgt with this feature enabled, though I assume a local in log will be recorded somewhere, either under logging or showing up under FortiView.  Someone may want to chime in here to confirm/clarify.
