I see that 5.6 adds some additional features. I have not tried any firmware beyond 5.4.5. What experience are those that are using 5.6.2 having? Would you recommend upgrading from 5.4.5 to 5.6.2 at this point?
In general, the best practice with Fortinet firmware is to wait until patch 3-5 of a new version before using it, the first few GA releases are usually pretty buggy. Thus it's just being cautious to recommend waiting. I'm with Emnoc personally, I would stick to 5.4.5 for a few more months.
I recently updated my FortiGate 90D to 5.6.2. I primarily use the device for site to site vpn. With the new firmware, there is no more the column: Uptime on IPsec Monitor.
Has anyone encounter this?
Dear FortiGate team, I would be grateful if same can be brought back as it is very useful. It gives an indication on the duration of the site to site vpn connection in cases of dynamic public IP addresses are being used (site to site vpn using Fortinet DDNS).
I'm running 5.6.2 on my lab box (a 60D) and it has an interesting bug: interfaces that negotiated to 1Gb/sec are now only coming up at 100. Even a FortiAP is coming up incorrect. I went from 5.2.11 which had no problems.
