Using FortiOS external resource list

FortiOS has the means now  to pull in  a list of  URL or IPs via a an external  webserver. The configuration is quite simple  and can be used to in security_profiles for DNS or web-Filterings

Define a list with an single address or URL per line

upload the list to your webserver

Configure the full URL and the update internal FortiOS will use

Monitor the HTTP access.log for  GET against the  source. In  this case is our FortiOS appliance

Now you have a means to   quickly apply updates via an external source.
