Differences between models FortiOS 6.2

Differences between models

Not all FortiGates have the same features, particularly entry-level models (models 30 to 90). A number of features on this models are only available in the CLI.

FortiGate models differ principally by the names used and the features available:

  • Naming conventions may vary between FortiGate models. For example, on some models the hardware switch interface used for the local area network is called lan, while on other units it is called internal.
  • Certain features are not available on all models. Additionally, a particular feature may be available only through the CLI on some models, while that same feature may be viewed in the GUI on other models.

If you believe your FortiGate model supports a feature that does not appear in the GUI, go to System > Feature Visibility and confirm that the feature is enabled.
