Whatʼs new in FortiOS 7.0.2

The following list contains new managed FortiSwitch features added in FortiOS 7.0.2. Click on a link to navigate to that section for further information:

  • The IGMP-snooping proxy has been enhanced. Before FortiOS 7.0.2, you could use the CLI to enable IGMP proxy on a system-wide basis. Now, you can use the CLI to enable IGMP proxy per FortiSwitch unit. For details, see Configuring the IGMP-snooping proxy.
  • You can now configure the IGMP-snooping querier version 2 or 3. When the IGMP querier version 2 is configured, the managed FortiSwitch unit will send IGMP version-2 queries when no external querier is present. When the IGMP querier version 3 is configured, the managed FortiSwitch unit will send IGMP version-3 queries when no external querier is present. For details, see Configuring the IGMP-snooping querier.
  • A Procend 180-T DSL transceiver (FN-TRAN-DSL) that is plugged in to a FortiGate-managed FortiSwitch port can now be managed by a FortiGate unit. The management of the DSL transceiver and the FortiSwitch port includes the ability to program the physical-layer attributes on the DSL module, retrieve the status and statistics from the module, upgrade the module's firmware, and reset the module. For details, see Managing DSL transceivers (FN-TRAN-DSL).
  • You can now specify FortiSwitch groups in NAC policies using the GUI and CLI. In previous FortiOS versions, you specified individual managed FortiSwitch units when creating a NAC policy using the set switch-scope command or selecting the FortiSwitch units in the Create NAC Policy window. In FortiOS 7.0.2, the set switch-scope command has been replaced with the set switch-group command, and the Create NAC Policy window allows you to specify FortiSwitch groups. You can select more than one FortiSwitch group in the CLI and GUI, and the same FortiSwitch unit can be included in more than one FortiSwitch group. If no FortiSwitch group is specified in the set switch-group command, all FortiSwitch groups are used for the NAC policy. For details, see Defining a FortiSwitch NAC policy.
