Hey There,

I found some thread on setting up a Fortinet 60C with 3G redundancy. I have pretty much gotten to the same point as previous threads.

My configuraton just sitting on 'connecting'.

Just a brief run down on my setup.

Fortinet 60D
Huawei E8278 Dongle - I had to create the modem manually in the firewall as it was using an alternative one.






config system modem






    set status enable






    set auto-dial enable






    set connect-timeout 30






    set phone1 "*99#"






    set extra-init1 "at+cgdcont=1,\"ip\",\"\""












I feel that it may be the port that is wrong like mentioned in other threads, but i am not sure on how to get it changed or to which one. Could you shed some light on this for me?

In advance, thanks for your help.

Why have you got it trying to connect to the Telecom / Spark WAP Gateway?

Because that seemed to be the same one it would connect to when running it from a computer. Have also noted that other people who have configured this are using the same or similar.

Try setting the username and password to 'ppp'.

johnr: No user name or password should be required

You think that would be the case but some devices simply refuse to connect without it.
