Legacy FortiGate 100A

Hi,

Legacy device controlling a simple /24 network using 1 wan connection.

Its https certificate ran from 2002-2014 and has expired of course.

Its internal java is woefully out of date. (can't load console in browser, but putty is fine)

 

Version: Fortigate-100A 3.00,build0319,060724 Virus-DB: 6.585(2006-07-17 14:44) IPS-DB: 2.305(2006-07-21 11:19)

 

I also cannot find documentation for the FortiGate 100A on docs.fortinet.

I assume it is running FortiOs 3?

 

Since business budget is small, and network is small, any recommendations on what to upgrade to?

There is no other Forti appliance here (analyzer, manager, etc.)

Its running on version 3 MR2 firmware . You can upgrade the device to firmware version 4 MR3 patch 18 which is latest firmware for this appliance model . This appliance model cant be upgraded to version 5 . 

 

You can follow the upgrade path on below below link which is meant for version 5 , you can follow the path till 4.3.18 (page 17) .

And if a hardware upgrade is warranted, something like the 100D maybe? (Or 60D with under a $1k budget?)

 

One caveat is the overseas HQ IT team that set the 100A up originally. They are more of an Oracle/VB dev team, and are very used to how the 100A operates.
