Introduction

This guide provides information about configuring a FortiSwitch unit in standalone mode. In standalone mode, you manage the FortiSwitch unit by connecting directly to the unit, either using the web-based manager (also known as the GUI) or the CLI.

If you will be managing your FortiSwitch unit using a FortiGate unit, refer to the following guide: FortiSwitch Devices Managed by FortiOS 7.0.

This section covers the following topics:

Supported models

This guide is for all FortiSwitch models that are supported by FortiSwitchOS, which includes all of the D-series, E-series, and F-series models.

Whatʼs new in FortiSwitchOS 7.0.6

Release 7.0.6 provides the following new features:

  • Three RADIUS attributes are now supported for RADIUS CoA-Request messages:

    • Tunnel-Type—VLAN (13)

    • Tunnel-Medium-Type—IEEE-802 (6)

    • Tunnel-Private-Group-ID—VLAN ID or VLAN name (13)

    NOTE: These attributes are also supported in FortiSwitchOS 6.4.12 and 7.2.2 or later.

  • The default value for the set dhcp-snoop-client-req command (under config system global) is now drop-untrusted, instead of forward-untrusted.

Refer to the FortiSwitch feature matrix for details about the features supported by each FortiSwitch model.

Before you begin

Before you start administrating your FortiSwitch unit, it is assumed that you have completed the initial configuration of the FortiSwitch unit, as outlined in the QuickStart Guide for your FortiSwitch model and have administrative access to the FortiSwitch unit’s GUI and CLI.
