FG300E IPS Setup

    Hi folks,

    Does anyone know if the Fortigate 300E support multiple context or not? Can I setup this product in transparent mode?
    I'm planning to replace my current cisco IPS with this product to work as IPS only, any help on how to setup?

    Thank you,

    DM

    Hi Denilson

    Sure, You can use VDOMs that are the equivalent of ASA Contexts.

    For transparent mode, you can VDOM in Transparent mode, there are also Fortigate models which support the Hardware Fail-Open on some ports, I do not remember if the 300E supports it, but I do not believe.

    Hi Roberto,

    Thank you for your reply, in the meanwhile can you please let me know if is possible like on cisco device we create a context and assign one or more interface and the IP address we assign on the context it self. On FG300E VDOM-A we can assign port 2 and 3 for the VDOM-A, same to VDOM-B port 4 and 5. Is it possible we bind those interfaces for use only one IP for the in/out traffic? In mine topology I have only one IP assigned for each context.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hi,

    If you mean Transparent Mode, you can do that.
