Hi Experts,

my customer uses Fortigate as a firewall.
Is it possible to set policies and block downloads with exe files or other files ?

Hi,

the link is not working with my Forti.
Sorry I forgot to tell you which Forti we work with.
Fortigate 200B

Do you have the manual for this unit too?

Please give the firmware version, so to get you the correct administration guide. It varies between versions.

Here is the manual - Link

We need to configure the file filtering using antivirus.

Check Page 15 "AntiVirus also includes file filtering. When you specify files by type or by file name, the FortiGate unit will stop the matching files from reaching your users."

Hi thanks I am now working with the manual.
But I cannot find this chapter:

Virus Database: Go to UTM Profiles > AntiVirus > Virus Database.

Where can I find this on my Fortigate ?
