We have just implemented a new Fortinet network setup including FortiGate firewalls + Forti switches and FortiAPs.
I have noticed that when going to FortiClient Monitor to see all the devices, the device name is not changing. Our users are all connected to docking stations and no user has a fixed place and therefore they can change their seats.
The device name is not changing as per the device that is connected to.
Having the same issue over here. Utilizing Fortigate 100f + Edgeswitch + Unifi Access Points.
Desktop computers, cameras, other IoT devices that do not move do not have the same issues.
Laptops that move from LAN to Wifi or from wifi to LAN docking stations have connection issues and often get blocked by the Fortigate. I've noticed that when a user connects a different laptop to a floating docking station they grab the same IP the last client had. Instantaneously getting blocked by the Fortigate as it see's a new MAC with the same IP address?
The Fortinet Security Fabric brings together the concepts of convergence and consolidation to provide comprehensive cybersecurity protection for all users, devices, and applications and across all network edges.
