TFTP network port

When you power on the FortiSwitch unit, the BIOS performs basic device initialization. When this activity is complete, and before the OS starts to boot, you can click any key to bring up the boot menu.

From the menu, click the "I" key to configure TFTP settings. With newer versions of the BIOS, you can specify the network port (where you have connected your network cable). If you are not prompted to specify the network port, you must connect your network cable to the default network port:

  • If the switch model has a WAN port, the WAN port is the network port.
  • If the switch has no WAN port, the highest port number is the network port.
