Forticonverter question

Hey guys,

 

I was wondering and apologies if this sounds like a silly question, but, does forticonverter works in trial mode without a license? I was trying to see if I can convert Check Point config over to Fortinet, but it simply says "tunning" for last 3 hours and no progress.

FortiConverter needs a license to produce any output.

The Trial mode is only intended to see the capabilities and not perform any conversion.

The problem may also happen if the converter is encountering some problems with the config. You may want to check the error log: https://docs.fortinet.com/document/forticonverter/6.2.1/online-help/267101/error-messages
