You'll have to bear with me here - it's been a while since I've done networking. Anyways, we recently picked up a FortiSwitch 108F and I'm having the hardest time getting it to be able to reach out to the internet when I configure a static IP.
When I set it to DHCP, it'll show up in FortiLAN and will show me a green FortiCloud icon in the dashboard of the GUI. When I set it to static, I lose NTP, FortiCloud access, (no doubt other things) and devices plugged in no longer have internet access.
What's confusing to me is when I use DHCP I can have it pull the default gateway from the "server", but changing it to static removes that option.
I've also tried setting a default route to 0.0.0.0/0 when using the static IP and pointing it to our router, but no dice (also, the only 2 options in device are None and internal??).
Thanks in advance for your support!
