    It all depends but most cisco  SFP/SFP+ will work. Fortinet is very acceptable for  using 3rd vpns

    I'd be interested to hear if it works. I couldn't even get a FortiGate one working on a FortiSwitch.

    First test with my spare 100D and 2 x J4859C link together (2 meters optical patch): port 15 & 16 are seen as Fiber port so it seams ok.
    next week, I will try on SM fiber (1 km)

    It's working fine for HA :
    2 FGT100D with a J4859C in each, directly connect over 1.2km singlemode fiber.
    I set a higher priority for that link so there's no impact on my network traffic

    We upgraded a couple switches to 6.2.0 and it appears we are having problems now with our 3rd party GBICs
