FortiGate CLI config backup over FTP command

You can connect over FTP/FTPS to your Wasabi S3 Bucket with your account credentials. In paid plan you can create sub-user with FTP/FTPS access.

To connect to your Wasabi S3 Bucket over FTP you need :

  • The region where the bucket is created here is eu-west-2
  • The name of the Bucket, here is backup_fortigate
  • Your username/email & password of your Wasabi account here is fortigate@gitbook.deddy.me

You can connect to your Bucket with a FTP’s client https://winscp.net or https://filezilla-project.org with this configuration :

Build the FortiGate CLI Command

execute backup full-config ftp <bucket_name>/fortigate_01_config [s3.<](http://s3.eu-west-2.wasabisys.com:21/)wasabi_bucket_region>.wasabisys.[com:21](http://s3.eu-west-2.wasabisys.com:21/) <ftp_username/email> <ftp_password>

The complete FortiGate CLI Command

execute backup full-config ftp backup_fortigate/fortigate_01_config [s3.](http://s3.eu-west-2.wasabisys.com:21/)eu-west-2.wasabisys.[com:21](http://s3.eu-west-2.wasabisys.com:21/) fortigate@gitbook.deddy.me superStrongPassword

Wasabi Cloud Active the FTP/FTPS protocol in the settings
