How to Reset a Fortinet Fortigate 50A Firewall
Posted on 2009-02-17
Need to be able to Reset Fortigate 50A. I don't know the password. I do have a Seriel Cable. I don't have a RJ-45 port for the Console on the back of the Fortigate 50A. I just have a Seriel Port on the back of the Firewall.
Have done the following
1. Use the serial cable to connect the FortiGate Console port to the management computer serial port.
2. Start a terminal emulation program (HyperTerminal) on the management computer. Use these settings:
Baud Rate (bps) 9600, Data bits 8, Parity None, Stop bits 1, and Flow Control None.
3. At the Login: prompt, type admin and press Enter twice (no password required).
and still did not work. what eles can I do.
