Support up to 24 interfaces on FortiGate VM

FortiGate VM now supports 24 interfaces or ports.

To use all 24 interfaces:
  1. In the hypervisor, such as KVM, create 24 interfaces.

  2. On the FortiGate, go to Network > Interfaces to see all of the available interfaces.

  3. In the CLI, enter the following command to see the interfaces:
    # show system interface
    config system interface
        edit "port1"
            set vdom "root"
            set ip 10.6.30.144 255.255.255.0
            set allowaccess ping https ssh snmp http telnet fgfm
            set type physical
            set snmp-index 1
        next
        edit "port2"
            set vdom "root"
            set type physical
            set snmp-index 3
        next
    
        ...
    
        edit "port23"
            set vdom "root"
            set type physical
            set snmp-index 24
        next
        edit "port24"
            set vdom "root"
            set type physical
            set snmp-index 25
        next
        edit "ssl.root"
            set vdom "root"
            set type tunnel
            set alias "SSL VPN interface"
            set snmp-index 2
        next
    end
