fortigate 60d access vlan port

i have un fortigate 60d , i removed the cisco switch to manage everything from the firewall. on the cisco switch I had ports in access mode, is it possible to have the same configuration on the firewall ports?

Fortigates operate in switch or interface mode

In switch mode you have a single virtual interface containing all user ports so effectively acts as in access switch mode.

i have configurated hardware switch and free internal

but i can't put internals in access mode on a specific vlan like normal cisco switches. example I have a device that I cannot set the vlan but I have wired on my fortigate and not being on the vlan specification it is not reached by other devices

I wonder then why the hardware switch function. I'm trying

 

edit "internal5" set vdom "root" set ip 172.25.40.254 255.255.255.0 set allowaccess ping set alias "QNAP" set device-identification enable set role lan set type physical set snmp-index 20 set vlanid 40 next

 

but when i try the command set vlanid 40 show error

Your attached images are broken. But the hard-switch "config sys virtual-switch" is to have the same set of non-tag + VLANs on a set of multiple physical ports. Then it becomes a single port for configuration.

Carl_Wallmark

Only certain models support vlan switch, in other words to put an interface or groups of interfaces as "untagged vlan"

 

First it needs to activated:

config system global

set virtual-switch-vlan enable

end

 

then it should be visible in the GUI:

 

Then you can also create "Trunk" interfaces.

 

It is documented here:

I agree, but my boss wants certain devices to be behind firewalls and these devices must have the port in access

it's possible upgrade ?

The 60D will not support "virtual-switch-vlan", (access mode).

 

Reach out to the fortinet support and ask which models and OS supports the "virtual-switch-vlan". You probably need a newer/bigger model for that, I know it is working on 100E, 100F and 300E as I have configured it myself.

for my needs the 100E is too big .. I would like to be able to solve the problem with the 60D
