Hardware Switch on FG300E?

I have a new 300E running 5.6.3 out of the box. No interfaces are configured yet. When I go to create a new interface, I have the option for Software Switch, but not Hardware Switch.  Is there no longer a differentiation or is it simply not available on a 300E?

Thank you.

Thank you, Kurt. Mystery solved.

Hello srappaport,

Old topic, but I'm interested if it was "mystery solved" with operating system 5.6 or only after an upgrading to version 6.x

 

Thanks in advance and best regard

"Mystery solved" was in response to kurtli_FTNT who said that hardware switch was not available. I believe I probably ended up using software switch in that case. Not sure if any future version made it available.

on my FGT300E running v6.2.7 the commands "config system virtual-switch" and "config system physical-switch" are available and working.
