CAPWAP on multiple ports for broadcast discovery

Starting from Version 4.2.1, FortiExtender is able to discover FortiGate on multiple interfaces. It achieves this by sending discovery messages on multiple ports (port1, port2, port3, and port4), one at a time, until it has successfully connected with a FortiGate.

config system management fortigate

set ac-discovery-type broadcast

set ac-ctl-port 5246

set ac-data-port 25246

set discovery-intf lan port4

set ingress-intf

end

By default, FortiExtender starts the discovery process with the LAN ports (port1 through port3) first. If it fails to establish a connection after several attempts, it will move on to port4. If it fails on port4, it will go back to the LAN ports and start the process all over again.

A LAN interface has a static IP of 192.168.200.99 and a DHCP server IP of 192.168.200.110 — 192.168.200.210. We recommend connecting to the WAN port on FortiGate for ZTP.

The port4 interface is set for DHCP mode, and must be connected to the internal port on the FortiGate to obtain an IP address for the CAPWAP tunnel, which is the same as in previous versions.
