Fortigate VPN ipsec tunnel monitoring




I had a sensor to monitor the status of my ipsec VPNs. I have 3 VPNs, 2 are UP and 1 is Down (normal status), but my 3 VPNs status are OK (green). When I check the VPN status of my "down" VPN, the value is down, so the value is correct, but the sensor is green.

Any idea ?

Thanks, David

ps: I used the MIB provided by Fortinet.

Hi David,

For reference I would recommend this article as it covers a few details about monitoring Fortigate Firewalls.

In case you require further assistance, I would require a few screenshots showing the sensors "Overview" and "Settings" tabs. You can also send them by email to me:

  • [email protected]
  • In the subject mention (Case PAE990750), then it stays related to this thread and the ticket gets also to me to continue to work on it with you.

Kind regards,
