VDOM Routing

Hi,

I am new to Fortigate. I got 4 Vdoms (Management Vdom configuration). I am following link http://help.fortinet.com/fos50hlp/52data/Content/FortiOS/fortigate-virtual-domains-52/inter-VDOM.htm...

Can I put any IP address for link interface? In example, both accounting and sales link got 10.0.1.0

If you don't need NAT and not directly connect to the VDOM links, you don't have to assign any IP on the VDOM links, this would simplify the configuration for you. If you want to route something over the VDOM link, set the gateway in the route to 0.0.0.0 and it works.

I prefer ipv4 address   and you can set the links as  ethernet or p2p. I post this a few years back for examples

Did you activate NAT on the policy VDOM-Link > Internet?

Hi Oheigl,

Thanks for your reply. I didn't put IP for vdom link and I did following:

1. Vdom A: Policy to allow traffic over Vdom link. Route all traffic to Vdom link

 

2. Root: Policy to allow traffic from Vdom link. Route to internet. 

 

Root can access internet. Vdom A cannot. Not sure what part I am missing here.
