Technically, a trunk can be any port (or port group) that delivers multiple VLANs, not necessarily an LACP group. The smaller units can do that.

hi,

 

"trunk" can denote several features e.g. combining ports (via LACP), or VLAN IDs on a single port.

And no, the desktop models below the 100D do not support LACP a.k.a. link aggregation or trunking in that meaning.

This is deliberately left out in the FortiOS images for these models (maybe because the hardware doesn't support it).

Could you please first clarify what you mean by "trunk" - a port aggregation or a VLAN trunk port?

Open the GUI to "network > Interface", click "Create New".

Next name it, choose the type "vlan", then select what interface the VLAN will come across on (internal4), and number it.

...so a VLAN trunk. Bob's got the answer. Note that you can create more than one VLAN interface hanging off the same physical port - which then makes a VLAN trunk.

If you want to cut on effort you can put all VLAN interfaces into a zone and use the zone in just one policy.

You can add as many sub-interface and any valid vlan#, just keep in mind any max matrix count per fortiOS version and model.
