I’m preparing to start building up the configuration for a fortigate 80F and am wondering if there is anything special about the WAN ports. We’ll have two WAN uplinks, but both with copper handoffs. I ask because We’re in a campus network situation, so if possible I’d like to use one of the SFPs to link to another building rather than use it as a WAN connection.
Some 10 years ago I built a network doing firewalling on a stick (between two VLANS on the same cable) with I think a 60D? So I’m curious as to whether the architecture has changed in that respect.
