it's quite simple ...
questions appear after purchasing Fortinet equipment and there are no people willing to answer...
This is what I meant and I am certainly not mistaken
This applies to many issues - for example Fortigate support for LTE modems
The marketing answer is "yeah, of course our equipment works with LTE modems!"
The technical answer is: "well, they do work, but only specific models of selected manufacturers and with a specific firmware" -but you will find out about it until you spend a few nights looking for a solution to the problem -I checked personally ...
I would ask for a specific solution:
how to configure Fortswitch so that device statistics can be read via SNMP and sFlow - Fortiswitch is controlled by Fortigate for ease of use ...
Despite all the splendor, the universal functionality of the set: Fortigate + FortiLink + Fortiswitch etc etc, somehow I can't find such an option (I can see traffic in the Dashboard but for the entire VLAN, not the specific network traffic of port 17 in the switch)
For me it matters and it is much more important than the next bugged version of FortiOS 7 with 170 "new features" instead of fixing nightmarish bugs in FortiOS 6.2 and 6.4 or simply put into F generation at least 4Gigs of RAM to avoid legendary "memory conserve mode" -it would cost maybe 10$ more in production but saves a lot of careers ;^)
Well, I'm just a technician, not a marketer
Cheers and good health!
