Allow and block P2P connections on FortiGate (Torrent)4 min read

PRECONDITION

In this post we will see how to allow or block 2P2 traffic inside our fortinet.

ALLOW

First we go to System -> Feature Visibility and enable both the APPLICATION CONTROL and MULTIPLE SECURITY PROFILES settings.

In SECURITY PROFILES ->APPLICATION CONTROL let’s set the ALLOW option to UNKNOWN APPLICATIONS and P2P connections.

We edit the policies that we use within our firewall to communicate with the outside by defining our DEFAULT under APPLICATION CONTROL.

Now under FORTVIEW -> APPLICATION you can monitor the traffic in our network and check that the changes made are correct.

BLOCK

To block P2P connections instead, under SECURITY PROFILES -> APPLICATION CONTROL and set BLOCK on P2P connections

we change the policy by assigning to the APPLICATION CONTROL the one set as default

CONCLUSIONS

This is the final result:
