System Information WAN IP incorrect

I have a FortiGate 201E running 6.4.11. On the dashboard page in System Information, the WAN IP address shown is wrong. The IP address is one I do not recognise, and a whois lookup shows Amazon as the ISP (we don't use Amazon). If I run "diag sys waninfo ipify", it returns the correct IP address for the WAN interface.


What's going on? Is this cause for concern?

The dashboard is just showing your Fortigate's public IP address as it is seen by FortiGuard Servers. This is purely informative and cannot be changed directly if your Fortigate is hidden behind NAT. 


More details can be obtained in CLI with command:

diagnose sys waninfo 
diag debug en
diag debug application update -1
execute update-now
