I have a fortigate with a dedicated mgmt interface.
On the lan side, I use i.e. port1 with the address 192.168.77.1/24.
Is it possible to "set dedicated-to management" to the mgmt interface and give it an address like 192.168.77.200/24 ?
Usually, with normal ports, this would lead to issues with routing as both interfaces would be directly connected and in the same subnet.
Yet, the explanation of the "dedicated-to management" function seems to indicate that this should be possible (?). Though it seems that still both interfaces (port1, mgmt) would generate a direct connect route.
So, even if it's not best practice, can I place the dedicated-to management interface into the same subnet as another port on the same fortigate?
