Adding FortiGate FW to LibreNMS or any NMS

We’re running the Forigate v7 and have been having a hard time getting snmp to work. Typically all you need to do is go into any devices admin console, networking and enable snmp. Here is what worked for us.

Setting up SNMP

Log into your firewall and browse to the page below and make sure SNMP is enabled for the system.

System > SNMP
SNMP settings

Now head on over to your interfaces

Network > Interfaces

Edit the interface you want and enable SNMP under Administrative Access.

SNMP enabled for Interface

Going back into Librenms let’s force a rediscovery and see what happens.

Lot’s more info now!
