    I don't know a thing about it, but a quick check of google turned up a couple of problems with it. One of them is here
    Fortinet Fortigate Firewall contains a flaw that allows a remote cross site scripting attack. This flaw exists because the application does not sanitize URLs that are logged via the web interface. This could allow a user to create a specially crafted URL that would execute arbitrary code in the administrator's browser within the trust relationship between the browser and the server, leading to a loss of integrity.
    I don't know if they have patched that yet, and I didn't check out the others listed. But you probably should.

    I don't know if this is the same firewalls you're talking about but these are fortigates Link .

    The firm is Astalavista IT engineering (hmmm).

    Know the type you are gonna get ?
    You can download PDF-files from all types here.

    The site is in german so this might be a problem.

    If your german is any good you can find more info here ..maybe.

    Hope this helps a bit.

    I am not running a Fortigate & Fortigate Analyzer, so if you have any questions, I may be able to help you.

    I am however, looking for a basic list of webcontent filter (sites and keywords).

    err, this thread is two years old? You should know better than that

    As far as the list for webcontent filter Fortinet provides that too. I'm not sure of the address but call your Fortinet provider and they will know (at least they should).


    We are running Fortigates and FortiLog here... neither of which I'm very happy with at the moment.
