I agree on diff, the lack of a configuration diff on appliance is really bad. Fortinet approach has been to use the fortimanager, but that' s not a easy to sale devicve. I guess for now you have to dump the config and do it old fashion way
This can be done directly from the FortiGate on many models. On the main dashboard on the GUI, click on " Revisions" on the " System Configuration" line in the " System Information" widget. You can do a highlighted diff of historical versions of your configuration, and restore it.
What would be a great tools wizzard for building vpn between fortigate and some other devices or another fortigate. Juniper has start their own and I' m really surprised that wiith all of the VPN problems person encountered, that fortinet has made a simple vpnwizzard builder as a onboard wizzard or a website tool.
There is a simple VPN wizard available in FortiOS 5.0 and 4.3. Several types of tunnels can be created, including iOS. In the next release, this feature will be significantly better.
Are there any particular VPN configurations that you' d like to see supported in a wizard?
