Is there a cisco packet tracer equivelent for fortinet (fortiswitch & fortigate) ?
I am trying to learn fortiswitch (cli) and fortigate. Anyone has any idea?
Thank you for contacting Fortinet Forum
There is no simulation based software like Packet tracer in fortigate firewall
You can use the FortiGate VM to build out lab environments. I get it though, not the same as a simulation.
I don't think that is the same from what I read here, but you should be able to understand well what packets are on FortiGate on which interface when you understand the integrated CLI sniffer well:
diag sniff packet any 'icmp' 4 0 a
Shows ICMP packets, decodes them, shows the interface and direction where the packet is seen (4), writes unlimited amount (0) and adds the (a)bsolute timestamp to it.
Runs on FortiGate, FortiSwitch, FortiAnalyzer, FortiManager and FortiMail. Probably more.
