Re: Fortigate 100E act as back bone core router and firewall
Are you using fortiswitch with fortlink or any other brand? I have this setup with 80E, 100E, and 600D.
Fortilink: Hookup a port to each firewall. Setup VLANS under switch managment and assign profiles to different vlans. I also have pri internet vlan with no IP used to share the internet connection to the two firewalls. I segment the servers from the workstations and use rules for internal routing and policy control.
Works well with about 80 users on the 100E so far. Haven't had any issues. Love using the fortiswitch which can tell you what devices are on what port of the switch and allow you to assign vlans to the port all through the firewall.
