I am new to Fortinet, but eager to learn how to deploy my new FortiWiFi
60D in my home lab network.Goals:1. Setup different security zones,
using VLANs I think, that segregate high risk guest traffic, medium risk
production traffic, and highly secure...
Thanks Kenundrum for your fast reply to my VDOM vs VLAN performance
query! Journeyman doesn't say what Fortinet device he is running, so,
hopefully, he will see your posting and dig a little deeper into
multiple VDOM resource utilization if, like me,...
If you do activate VDOMs on your device, I would be very interested in
knowing how much of a cpu/memory/throughput performance hit your
Fortinet takes after VDOM implementation. I am interested because I have
to decide how to segment my own FortiWiFi...
Devin, Wow, I had never heard of the DIAL protocol before. I have added
that to my protocol library and will be researching more about it as
soon as I get the time. Explicitly forwarding all multicast traffic thru
your software switch was a smart fir...
Great feedback Devin - thanks! I hope a FortiNet engineer will comment
on this thread and enlighten us about VDOM resource utilization vs VLAN
tagging. (Basic hardware operation intuition does indeed imply that VLAN
tagging should impose much lower c...
Devin, Spock here... Sounds like your Fortinet is passing ICMP traffic
for pinging IP devices, but it is not passing SSDP or other ND
(Neighborhood Discovery) protocols that are needed by your various
devices & the services they are using. You may ha...
