    NO UTM profiles, all is no inspection (for testing)
    Policies all allow (for testing)
     
    I confirm something is not working with 6.2.1 to me...
     
    In my tests:
     
    pc1----fg1_v_6.2.1 <----ipsec tunnel ---> fg2_v_6.2.1 --- pc2
    windows sharing: from pc2 --> download a file from pc1 --> ok
    windows sharing: from pc2 --> upload a file to pc1 --> error
     
    partial downgrade:
    pc1----fg1_v_6.2.0 <----ipsec tunnel ---> fg2_v_6.2.1 --- pc2
    windows sharing: from pc2 --> download a file from pc1 --> ok
    windows sharing: from pc2 --> upload a file to pc1 --> error
     
    full downgrade:
    pc1----fg1_v_6.2.0 <----ipsec tunnel ---> fg2_v_6.2.0 --- pc2
    windows sharing: from pc2 --> download a file from pc1 --> ok
    windows sharing: from pc2 --> upload a file to pc1 --> ok
     
    ----
    With small files, no issue. I have problems with files > 13/15MB
     
    ---
     
    Other issue examples:
    pc3 -- fg3_v_6.2.0 <----ipsec tunnel ---> fg4_v_6.2.0 --- pc4
     
    from pc3 -> \\pc4\share\ -> browsing is fast, then right click on a chrome installation file (.exe>25M) -> explorer freezed
    from pc4 -> \\pc3\share\ -> download skype setup (>50M) -> ok (with a pause about at 80%, no packet loss pinging during this pause)
    from pc4 -> \\pc3\share\ -> upload skype setup (>50M) -> error , at beginning ok, at 19% speed to 0kb and after sometime timeout error (also, no packet loss in ping).
     
    Strange issue I opened a ticket with support hoping to solve,

    brycemd,
     
    The downloads are still available- just the link missing from the main page from what I can see.
     
    Interesting spot though- be nice to know if it's planned or accidental?
     
    Kind Regards,
     
     
    Andy.

    We have a Fortigate 301E. Are 6.0 and 6.2 parallel branches? We are still running 6.0.4 and I am trying to figure out whether I should be looking at 6.2.1 or not.

    They are somewhat parallel branches but no where near as confusing as Cisco.
     
    The major release 5.6.x, 6.0.x, 6.2.x denote primarily the features and functions available, the minor or patch# x.x.1, x.x.2 denote patches that fix bugs or vulnerabilities. For the most part. Sometimes a patch release will introduce new features, but that is becoming much more rare. All the patches are cumulative inside the major release- however you should consult the update guide especially if jumping more than 1 patch release.
    Typically you want to stay on the major release that you are the most comfortable with and upgrade software when there is either a new feature that you need/want in a newer build or it goes end of life. Major releases typically make significant changes to functionality or behavior (for better or worse lately), interface changes, and sometimes introduce backwards compatibility issues. Usually they build on each other and better the functionality from the previous ones. Sometimes a feature gets dropped :-(. It has long been a trend to wait a few patch releases before jumping on board a new major release because of some show stopping bugs usually being found.
    I'm sure a whole thread can be had (and there are probably a bunch already) on how to choose which firmware to run, but the short answer would be i wouldn't worry about 6.2.x for a while. If you're fine with 6.0.4 and continue on the 6.0.x line, it's got a lot of time left on the support clock.
