How to purchase a FORTINET firewall.

Hi Experts,

I am planning to purchase a Fortigate 40c because where I am working now they need me to learn how to configure it. They have higher models in production. My question is next:
I checked the 40c and is expensive and I have seen cheaper for $ 70.00 dollars, Can you please tell me what would be the difference between the more expensive and 40c and the cheaper ones. I need to learn how to create policies, block users, create site to site and vpn clients.

Please advise.

The 40c does not support all the features that Fortinet can offer you however it does support what you ask for. If you do not want to buy it directly from one of Fortinet's resellers than I suggest verifying Ebay.

However, calling fortinet and asking for closest reseller to you should be easy enough.

See the file attached, it is the feature matrix.

Let me know.


I would suggest you to buy FG60C and above if you want to learn all features and it is feature sets will be same even for high end models from FG60C.

The best option is to use FortiGate VM and you can get it by requesting Fortinet support.
FortiVMs are free for 15days and restore it after that. Refer the following link for VBOX installation,

Good Luck!
