VIPs to firewall GUI

[align=left]Hello,[/align][align=left]I am using a Fortinet Fortigate 60D with FortiOS 5.2.4, and I am working with some VIPs.[/align][align=left]I have created a VLAN in the Internal interface and assigned the address range This interface has HTTP, SSH and HTTPS administrative access enabled, so if I want to connect to firewall's GUI it works fine.[/align][align=left]However, I want to connect to the GUI from another interface and I can't use ports 80 and 443, so I created three different VIPs, which are basically the same:[/align]

IP map: -> Port map: 2080 -> 80

IP map: -> Port map: 2443-> 443 

IP map: -> Port map: 4022-> 22

The main problem I am facing is that, despite the three VIPs are almost identical, I can connect to the Firewall via SSH but not via web browser to


Thank you for your help.

Well the native interface is assigned HTTPS on port 443 so yes, you will be denied The VIP at will work because it is redirecting port 2443 to port 443 which is listening on. As defined, everything is working as it should.

And if you change those admin ports under system->settings to whatever you want, you don't have to deal with VIPs at all.
