Migrate Cisco ASA to FortiGate

Hello, 
Since FortiConverter is not a free tool, any advise for migrating from Cisco ASA to FortiGate smoothly?

    depending on when you bought the FortiGate FortiConverter is a free service.
     
    but if that isn't an option then you best understand what the ASA does very well. then it is not that hard to configure the FortiGate in a similar way if you understand FortiGate also. if there is an issue with understanding one of them look for assistance, that will probably also come with a price.

    not the product, but a forticonverter service is available.

    unfortunately i now see it is a purchased service also, probably cheaper then the forticonverter license, which is quite affordable and probably easier to purchase when you buy the equipment then later.

    Thank you, I'm only stuck on NAT policy migration, I think i will try to handle it since ASA NAT is a bit confusing

    yeah, that is a tricky one. ASA can NAT in too many different ways with sometimes very limited configuration.
     
    with Fortinet you generally use VIPs and IP Pools for NAT. to create a good mapping you should understand what exactly is and isn't NATted on the ASA and then build the FortiGate configuration.
