Fortigate Message

Hi Experts,

I have set up a policy in my Forti firewall and blocking P2P applications.
I get messages that EDONKEY is running somewhere.
But when I check the computer, I cannot find anything.
Can you help me to understand the alert ?

See here:

Looks like it's identifying some https traffic as edonkey:
dst_port=443 service=HTTPS

Are you running the latest firmware, to make sure UTM definitions are current?

Looks like its an IPS signature issue. It would be better to get in touch with Fortinet support team.

Good Luck!

4.0 Patch 14 is reasonably new. If it's just a bogus, you can disable that specific UTM rule, or get support from Fortigate.

no I want this rule, because I will block all P2P applications.

Then I'd say open a ticket with Fortinet support, get them to check it out for you.

ok, can I just open a ticket with them when I have an active license ?
