Remote gateway Firewall

I want to create a VPN ipsec with forticlient  with the firewall "fortigate 90D" for my company. 

My problem is that I don't know the remote gateway of my firewall. Where is it?

 

Thank's (Sorry for my english)

if your 90D has Public address assigned on its WANx interface, then that is your remote gateway if you configure your forticlient connection.

Go to http://whatismyip.com. The posted IP address more than likely will be your connection IP address. If this address is different than the address you are seeing, then you have an ISP gateway in front of your Fortigate. You will need to have that configured to pass the IPSec traffic through to your Fortigate. That is the only way this will work.

Thanks for your answer.

 

My WANx is assigned to a private address. I don't understand why.  What I can do?
