email authentication with vdom

Hi, I have a fgt with three VDOM's, in one I have the internet interfaces and the traffic of the other two goes through the internet to be able to navigate, my problem is that I want to add a super admin user in global configuration with two-factor authentication via email, I already configured the email server with gmail, but the mail does not arrive, I tried it on another computer that I have without vdom and without problems



the FortiOS is 6.4.8


Hi SoGo,


you might want to check if there is a problem with routing in or due to the vdoms.

Easy way to check what the FortiGate is actually doing (assuming port 25 is your SMTP port):

diag sniffer packet any 'port 25' 4 0 a

which shows you if and where a packet is going out.

What also might help, likewise if the packet isn't even going out:

diag debug flow filter port 25

diag debug flow show iprope enable

diag debug enable

diag debug flow trace start 2

Which shows you two packets and FGTs' routing decision on these.


Best regards,
