I just installed a Fortigate 80D at a client site.  Installed fine but now client is saying that they cannot do a restore of their iPads and are getting a error when it tries to verify software?  Nothing is blocked going out of the firewall.  There is a content filter on Fortigate.  I have opened *.apple.com and *.verisign.com through the filter.  Any ideas what I might be missing?

My best guess is that you scanning ssl traffic. I suggest you turn off all ssl filtering on the 17.0.0.0/8 subnet (it's all Apple).

The ipads will get through now..

I just created a new policy for lan to wan any to 17.0.0.0/8  for any ports with no services enabled on the policy.  That should work?

Yes, lan to wan to 17.0.0.0/8, without any um profile, just nat.
It's probably the deep ssl inspection. That replaces the ssl certificate to inspect it. Apple won't allow that I bet!
That should work.

Can you test it?
