FortiGate PPPoE inside a VLAN

Some providers (like init7.ch which already uses the Swisscom XGS-PON) do encapsulate their PPPoE traffic into a VLAN Tag (802.1Q or Q-Tagged). The reason for this is, that in the majority of the cases the provider is using a layer 2 network (last mile) of another provider, which uses VLAN tagging to differentiate the traffic to different service providers.

The configuration of the FortiGate is not too complicated in those cases. It is even possible to make the whole configuration directly off the WebGUI.

What’s new with FortiOS 6.2/6.0.8: Update issue with certificate for WebUI

Recently we have had a few support cases where a customer was unable to log in to the firewall via WebUI after the firmware update. But SSH access worked fine.

It turned out that during the update process the server certificate used for the WebUI is lost.

Config with v6.0.4 (it does not happen with «self-signed» only):

config system global
set admin-server-cert "self-signed"
end
