Will the FG-TRAN-GC (1000baseTX) SFP work in the SFP+ port of an 800C? I
can do this with Cisco SFP+ ports. They will take any 1Gig or 10Gig SFP.
You may be asking why. Why use the SFP+ port when you have 4 other SFP
1Gig ports available. I have 2 Fo...
I use a product from Solarwinds called Cattools to automate nightly
backups of the firewall configurations. This software handles most every
device on our network including Dell switches, Cisco
Switches/Routers/Firewalls/Access Points, and FortiGates...
I thought I read somewhere that a user could be part of multiple groups.
How do I handle exceptions with groups? For instance, let's say that the
"standard" web profile for all does not allow access to gmail. Then, I
get a new request from the boss t...
emnoc, Could you please elaborate? I don't understand what you are
saying. I would assume that there was some reason why Fortinet added (2)
10Gbps ports to the 800C. I can understand that maybe the processing on
the firewall would limit actual throug...
Yes. I pretty much bundle everywhere primarily for redundancy. I do this
for closet access switches as well. If I lose a one, I'm still good. The
other point is that the HA is in active/passive. So 99% of the time, all
traffic is going through the ma...
All, I've successfully worked around the issue since I was required to
manually set ports 23 and 24 at speed of 10000. Auto negotiation was not
going to work. The best way to explain is with a diagram which I have
attached. So, to recap, we have 2 Fo...
emnoc, Thanks for reply. I forgot that these FG800Cs shipped with 2 1Gig
fiber SFPs. I placed one into port 24. I was required to set the port to
speed 1000full in order for it to link to the Cisco switch. The bad
thing now is that when I make this c...
Issue was resolved. Received this from Fortinet: “We are not supporting
1024 SSH algorithm in 5.2.7 or any new firmware beyond this via General
Release (on 5.2.x family) You need to use tools that can support 2048”
Solarwinds released an update for C...
