Course details

The Secured Network Deployment and IPSec VPN course provides 3 days of instructor-led online training where participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the advanced networking and security features of the FortiGate Unified Threat Management security appliances. Instruction is provided in real time over the web through supported browsers; students can participate from any computer with an Internet connection.

The lecture and demonstration components of the classroom are presented by a Fortinet-certified
trainer. Hands-on labs allow students to perform the tasks associated with the configuration and troubleshooting of virtual domains, routing, WAN optimization, high availability, IPS, authentication and IPSec VPNs. A virtual lab environment allows student to access the FortiGate devices required for the hands-on exercises without requiring physical Fortinet hardware.

This course demonstrates features that can be easily adapted when planning a secure network deployment using FortiGate Unified Threat Management appliances.This advanced-level course is a continuation of the topics discussed in FortiGate Multi-Threat Security System I – Administration, Content Inspection and SSL VPN (RealTime OnLine Course 201).

Target Audience

This course is intended for networking professionals involved in the design and implementation of a security infrastructure using FortiGate Unified Threat Management appliances. This advanced-level course is a continuation of the topics discussed in FortiGate Multi-Threat Security System I – Administration, Content Inspection and SSL VPN(Course 201). Content in the 301 course is geared to professionals with a sound knowledge of the concepts involved in the operation of a FortiGate device. It is assumed that students are familiar with the topics presented in the 201 course.


Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Construct virtual domains and configure inter-VDOM routing.
  • Use the built-in FortiOS diagnostic tools for troubleshooting and performance monitoring.
  • Configure static and dynamic routing.
  • Define identity-based policies for authentication.
  • Control access to network resources by enabling local user, LDAP and Directory Services authentication.
  • Configure IPS protection to protect network resources from attack.
  • Debug IKE exchanges to troubleshoot connection negotiations.
  • Create IPSec VPNs to permit client access to a FortiGate VPN gateway.
  • Set up a high availability cluster configuration.
  • Configure a FortiGate unit in Transparent Mode.
  • Implement FortiGate traffic optimization techniques.
