Description

Firewall Rental is a service for renting a software-hardware complex (switch, router, or firewall), with the ability to configure it to meet the necessary requirements. Selectel provides an uninterrupted power supply to the equipment, microclimate, service management capabilities, and connection to an isolated local network and the Internet.

You can view a list of firewalls available for order in the Control panel.

Please note that the list of firewalls available for order may differ for different regions.

The service includes:

  • use of computing resources of equipment with fixed configuration;
  • Internet connection with a speed or traffic tracking scheme;
  • connection to a private network;
  • replacement of failed components and network equipment entirely;
  • 24 / 7 technical support, regarding device operability and connection of the isolated local network and the Internet.

Additional charged services:

  • vendor technical support;
  • additional subscriptions, such as additional software functions of the network equipment that allow you to monitor and filter network traffic passing through the equipment according to the specified rules and/or other actions.

The service provision starts within 5 days from the date of order.

You can connect to the firewall remotely over public networks by installing and configuring the appropriate software on the rented equipment.

Administration can be performed both in the CLI (SSH, Telnet, GUI Widget) and in the GUI (Web-browser (HTTP, HTTPS), FortiExplorer).

Glossary

Term Definition
CLI (Command-Line Interface) A text-based user interface used for any functions and commands. You can access the FortiOS command-line interface using a widget in the graphical user interface named CLI Console or through a terminal emulator, such as Tera Term or PuTTY, and connect to the firewall over a network - SSH or telnet
GUI (Graphical User Interface) A graphical user interface based on the representation of all system objects and functions available to the user as graphical elements. A graphical panel is used to interact with FortiOS. Most of the functionality is available in both the GUI and CLI, but there are a few exceptions. Advanced configuration and diagnostic commands for superusers are usually not available in the GUI
NAT (Network Address Translation) A method of remapping private IP addresses to external addresses in IPv4, which allows the VM to access the Internet. The private network uses three blocks of private (gray) IP addresses that are not used on the Internet:
- 10.0.0.0 — 10.255.255.2558 (16777216 hosts);
- 172.16.0.0 — 172.31.255.25512 (1048576 hosts);
- 192.168.0.0 — 192.168.255.25516 (65536 hosts)
NAT mode One of the possible modes of operation in which a FortiGate is installed as a gateway or router between two networks. Typically, you set the FortiGate up between a private network and the Internet, which allows the FortiGate to hide the IP addresses of the private network using NAT. Each of its logical network interfaces has an IP address, and FortiGate determines an outgoing or incoming interface based on the destination IP address and entries in its routing tables
VLAN (Virtual Local Area Networks) Network segments isolated from each other at the L2 level. VLANs use ID tags to logically separate devices on a network into smaller broadcast domains. These smaller domains forward packets only to devices that are part of this VLAN subnet. In NAT mode, the FortiGate controls the flow of packets between VLANs, but can also remove VLAN tags from incoming VLAN packets
