rename the interfaces on that firewall

Hi All,

I have worked on Fortigate 100D firewall.

Can we rename the interfaces on that firewall?

For example: change named from DMZ -> Secure-Zone.

With Regards,

Khemarin

    The best way to work with any fortigate is to create zones for ever single interface or combinations thereof.

    Create zone (like external and place the required interfaces in the zone)

    Note the interface will only show up if they aren' t used.

    Cheers, Eric

    Bottom line answer, no you can NOT rename a phy-interface. You can like  what as mention above  but that would require you  tear down any policies to create zones or  better option is to use aliases  in the config sys  interface for each named interfaces
     
     
    config sys interface
     
    edit  port1
        set alias  SecureDMZ01
    end
