We want to arm you with education about the game that your children are spending so much time playing. We also want to know that you have a solution if you feel your kids are playing Fortnite too much. We are not psychologists at iKydz, but we are parents and we do know our tech. We believe that it is up to individuals to decide on what is appropriate for their children to do online and so we give parents easy-to-use tools to set the online boundaries. Parents can now easily limit and schedule the time that their kids spend on Fortnite with one click on their iKydz app.
Players roam the virtual earth in search of resources and weapons to build fortifications and win out in a battle of survival. Seen Hungers Games? This is kinda the same idea. These are groups of 4 where your kids are contactable by anyone in their squad.
They can speak directly to each other. This is where it can become dangerous for your kids. As any parent who has children playing the game knows, the game requires a tremendous amount of time to improve player stats. The level of addiction and time spent playing the game represents a real concern to many parents.
If you are wondering how much time your child has spent on the game, you can check this in their profile. Simply go to settings, then profile and you can see how many hours they have spent on Fortnite. As such, these games are designed to make it hard to stop playing. Do you really think a year-old is going to win against a Silicon Valley-employed behavioural scientist? There is no doubt that it is the source of many a discussion amongst kids of school-going age, although the risks of encouraging obsessive and over anxious behaviours remain.
Parents have reported online that kids can become noticeably agitated and difficult when it comes time to stop the game.
Gamers can advance their status in Fortnite by purchasing upgrades such as skins. Not only can this quickly run up a large bill, this also encourages an environment for online gambling which we are seeing a major increase in.
Especially in young boys. In a recent post from iKydz we tell parents exactly what is fortnite and how you can take measures into your own hands to ensure your children are safe on this game. There has been a new game function added to Fortnite Battle Royale allowing users to easily connect with strangers via text chat and voice chat. The voice chat can be disabled however the text chat cannot.
This new feature gives grounds for strangers all over the world to send whatever texts they wish to your child. View Larger Image. What parents need to know about Fortnite. How many hours are your kids on Fortnite?

No luck Blocking the Fortnite Video game by Epic Games I work for a school that is requesting us to block the Fornite game from being played. However it appears using the Web Filter and reclassifying the Epicgames. I am trying to block the Fortnite game from connecting to the EpicGames servers, It appears they use Amazon Web services which seems to be tricky when blocking applications.
I do see that Fortinet has Epic. Games listed as an Application finally. I have blocked this under application control, now half of the students that try to play cant and the other half still can.Join us now! Forgot Your Password? Forgot your Username?

Bronze Member. After doing a fair amount of searching in the FortiGate documentation and Googling, I found the information available online about this topic was either incomplete or out of date. I successfully did the below steps today on a FortiGate 60D running Firmware 5. Remember this, you need it in Step 3. Anything you want. If you want to just have a 1-to-1 inbound static NAT map, leave this unchecked.
Restrict and control access through IPv4 firewall policies. If you want to control or redirect specific ports, check this and then add custom rules as necessary. FortiGate applies policies from top to bottom. New Member. Thanks lyontech, Exactly what I needed. Thank you for the feed back. You can also just edit the VIP rule in cli with set nat-source-vip enable.
Thanks Darren for your response. Both are very useful. Hi Iyontech, Can I apply this for internal private network connection? I'm doing maintenance and want to nat this particular host to a vip on a different interface. I thought about setting up the second VIP, then changing my dns to the new address. Once it propagates I can remove the original VIP and do my maintenance.Join us now! Forgot Your Password? Forgot your Username? Haven't received registration validation E-mail?

Could someone please shine a light on what the issue may be here and how I can resolve it? Many thanks for your kind assistance. New Member. I'm seeing alert messages similar to what John is describing.
Fortigate logs this with Virus Threat Score 50 Critical. I'm a bit hesitant to bypass the fortigate alert. Any recommendations? Thanks, Eric. I assume there must have been an issue with the anti-virus scanning engine which created 'false-positives' on.
I have now upgraded our appliances to v6. Which Antivirus are you using? I'm still seeing. The reason for this has changed though. When on v6.

Now, using v6. My understanding of the AntiVirus scanning process led me to believe that any files over the default limit of 10MB could not be scanned and would be passed nevertheless without scanning.Join us now! Forgot Your Password? Forgot your Username?

I have a Fortigate 60E securing Internet access, I'm using Security profile to block unwanted websites and applications and it's working fine except for Chrome extensions.
I found that some users are using Hoxx and Windscribe extensions for chrome.
How can I block fortnite, either at IP Router level or via the xbox console?
They are able to bypass our security rules and connect to some sites that are blocked by Company's policy. Could you please help me finding a solution for that. Thanks and kind regards, Gr1n3. To block this you may simply create Application Control profile with these apps blocked or "Proxy" category at all and apply it on your lan-to-wan firewall policy. Fortinet already has signatures for these applications. Do you have deep ssl inspection enabled?
I have the "Certificat-Inspection" enabled not "Deep-inspection" Should I turn it to "deep-inspection", will this affect my current config by blocking any kind of traffic that is aready allowed and working fine? Thanks for your reply, Gr1n3. So it seems to be a root cause. With deep inspection enabled FG should be able to block mentioned extensions.While the profile configuration for this is not found in the Security Profiles section but in the Policy Section, it is set in the policy along with the security profiles.
This sort of analysis is some times referred to as deep scanning. Deep Inspection works along the following lines. If your FortiGate unit has the correct chipset it will be able to scan SSL encrypted traffic in the same way that regular traffic can be scanned.
The FortiGate firewall will essentially receive the traffic on behalf of the client and open up the encrypted traffic. Once it is finished it re-encrypts the traffic and sends it on to its intended recipient.FortiGate Cookbook - Blocking Facebook (5.4)
It is very similar to a man-in-the-middle attack. By enabling this feature, it allows the FortiGate firewall to filter on traffic that is using the SSL encrypted protocol. SSL inspection prevents this circumvention. At one point deep inspection was something that was either turned on or off.
Now individual deep inspection profiles can be created depending on the requirements of the policy. Depending on the Inspection Profile, you can:. When performing deep inspection, the FortiGate intercepts the https traffic and would send its own self-signed CA certificate to the browser.
Instructions for this vary between browsers. When you are using a browser to visit SSL encrypted sites and we are using a certificate that does not match the certificate of the site, we are presented with a warning message and the option of continuing, using the untrusted certificate, or terminating the session.
However, there are a number of applications that use SSL encrypted traffic. If the application detects SSL traffic that wasn't signed with a certificate that it trusts it will not allow the traffic. The applications do not give the option to manually indicate that we trust the certificate or the site.
If the option is available, the customer may choose to import needed SSL certificates into Local Certificates and configure a policy for communication for that application. The assist in preventing loss of access to these site but still enabling the SSL inspection of the rest of the internet traffic, a method of exempting either Website categories or specific sites has been developed. To exempt a large group of sites the profile can be configure to exempt FortiGuard Categories.
There are 3 of these categories preselected due to the high likelihood of issues with associated applications with the type of websites included in these categories. The adding of addresses is done by selection from a drop down menu. There is an option at the bottom of the list to create a new address, but otherwise only preconfigured addresses that are configured to be on the "Any" interface will be available for selection.
Examples of sites that you may want to configure for exemption so that there will be no interference due to certificate issues:. It might seem like a straight forward decision that the allowing of invalid SSL certificates must be bad and therefore should not be allowed, but there can be some reasons that should be considered.
The issues at hand are the reasons to use a SSL certificate and the reasons that a certificate will be considered invalid. At a purely technical level, a properly formed certificate will encrypt the data so that it can only be read by the intended parties and not be read by anyone sniffing traffic on the network.
For this reason, people will often use self-signed certificates. These self signed certificates are free and will encrypt the data just as well as those purchased from any of the big vendors of certificates, but if they are not listed as an approved Certificate Authority CA the certificates will be considered invalid. On the other hand, one of the services the vendors provide is verification of identity of those that purchase their certificates.
The menu bar will have the following items:. The items at the top right with their radio buttons represent the 2 potential views that the policies can be displayed in. The Global View shows all of the policies in the order of their sequence. With the default settings you will be able to see the sequence number in a column close to the left side of the table.
