New 60E - no fortiexplorer port.

Curious if this was a design oversight or they are degrading/discontinuing the fortiexplorer.  Disappointing, as it made configs/migrations very easy..

Does the FortiExplorer app on the iPhone work over USB-A still?

The problem is not the application but that the usb port on FGT60E is not set for communicating with the bix but only as "media" reader for allowing firmware/config uploads.

FGT: 50E,100D, 200D, 600D
FMG: VM64

FAZ: VM64

i have the same problem with FGT-30E!

Very sad that FN omitted that usb-mgm-port.

I greatly prefer a serial port to the usb port, so if they can't do both I like the new format.  We deploy 60E's to remote locations and a real console port allows me to hook an OpenGear cellular-based serial router to it for OOB access.  Heck, right now I'm staring at a 60D connected to FortiExplorer and I have no font on the CLI tab; I know it's taking what I type because I can guess my way into exec'ing a reboot, but kind of hard to do anything useful when you can't see the text.
