PTP transparent clock mode configuration for managed FortiSwitch devices

For communicating timing precision between two ends, PTP transparent clock mode can be enabled to measure and adjust for packet delay. It is supported on the following FortiSwitch models: 3032E, 3032D, 1048E, 5xxD series, 4xxE series, 424D, 224E, and 224D.

On the FortiGate that is managing the compatible FortiSwitch, switch controller PTP settings and policies can be configured per VDOM. A PTP policy can also be selected for each FortiSwitch port.

To configure the switch controller PTP settings:
config switch-controller ptp settings
    set mode {default | transparent-e2e | transparent-p2p}
end

default

Disable the PTP function (default). Packets are forwarded with no action.

transparent-e2e

Enable end-to-end transparent clock.

transparent-p2p

Enable peer-to-peer transparent clock.

To configure a switch controller PTP policy:
config switch-controller ptp policy
    edit "default"
        set status enable
    next
end
To set the PTP policy on a switch port:
config switch-controller managed-switch
    edit "S524D00000000000"
        config ports
            edit "port1"
                set ptp-policy default
            next
        end
    next
end
