Interconnecting Junos and FortiOS

I am trying to connect two routers.
A Fortigate 200B (FortiOS v5.0,build0147 (GA Patch 1)) and a Juniper SRX240H (JUNOS Software Release [11.4R5.5]).

Here is a quick diagram of the topology:

PC1[172.16.3.3/24]<->[172.16.3.1/24]SRX240[172.16.254.1/30]<->[172.16.254.2/30]FGT200B[192.168.1.150/24]<->[192.168.1.8]SERVER1

I can ping PC1 from SERVER1.
I can ping 172.16.254.1 from FortiGate 200B.
I cannot ping SERVER1 from PC1.
I cannot ping 172.16.254.2 from SRX240H.

FGT200B created a directly connected route for 172.16.254.0/30 and is pushing it through
port10[172.16.254.2/30].
I cannot see the same thing on SRX240H. I tried creating a route to 172.16.254.0/30 on SRX240H with the outgoing interface port10[172.16.254.1/30], but I get the error message that the interface is not a point-to-point connection.

How can I get the two routers to communicate properly?

Which port on Fortigate is connected to SRX240H?

Let's say you are connected as below:

SRX240[172.16.254.1/30]<->Port1-[172.16.254.2/30]FGT200B Portw [192.168.1.150/24]<->[192.168.1.8]SERVER1

The routes should be:

172.16.3.0/24 port1 172.16.254.1

On the router SRX24OH, you need to add.

ip route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 172.16.254.2

Port10[172.16.254.2/30] on Fortigate is connected to port10[172.16.254.1/30] on Juniper.

I tried adding the route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 172.16.254.2 on SRX240H, but I cannot access the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet from the SRX240H, nor the 172.16.254.0/30 subnet.

Here is the relevant output from the FGT200B routing table:
S       172.16.3.0/24 [10/0] via 172.16.254.1, port10
C       172.16.254.0/30 is directly connected, port10
C       192.168.1.0/24 is directly connected, switch

And also from SRX240H:

192.168.1.0/24    *[Static/5] 1d 01:52:57
                              > to 172.16.254.2 via ge-0/0/10.0
172.16.3.0/24      *[Direct/0] 1d 01:47:18
                              > via ge-0/0/1.0
172.16.254.0/30  *[Direct/0] 1d 01:47:18
                              > via ge-0/0/10.0
172.16.254.1/32  *[Local/0] 1d 01:47:31
                              > Local via ge-0/0/10.0

What is the gateway for PC1 and Server1?

You are not able to ping 172.16.254.2 from SRX240H?

Is the ICMP allowed on Fortinet interface 10?

Can you also post traceroute from PC1 to Server1?

PC1 gateway: 172.16.3.1
Server1 gateway: 192.168.1.150

Yes, I am unable to ping 172.16.254.2 from SRX240H.

All protocols are allowed on Fortigate interface 10.

Here is the traceroute output from PC1 to Server1:

There is your issue.

SRX240[172.16.254.1/30]<->[172.16.254.2/30]FGT200B

The connection between SRX and FGT.

Is it a direct connection or what type of connection is this?

It is a direct connection, ethernet port-to-port.

But, I am able to ping 172.16.254.1 from FGT200B.

I can also ping from Server1 to PC1.

Traceroute from Server1 to PC1 shows 192.168.1.150 as 1st hop and 172.16.254.1 as second hop and 172.16.3.3 as 3rd hop.

Since you are not able to ping from SRX to the Fortgate, I think that is the issue there.

You have the correct routing so I'm curious if Fortigate is blocking incoming traffic.
