Fortigate/Fortinet TFTP Issues
I have seen a lot of issues using tftp to upload a new image to a fortinet/fortigate device so i figured i would provide some information.
First off I am assuming you have a console connection to the Fortigate and are in the preboot configuration. You should also press G to get into the tftp image upload mode.
If you are using Windows 7 you need to do the following:
- download the appropriate image for the fortigate you are using. In my example i am using a 60C. After you download the file make sure to unlock it:
2. After you do this you need to properly configure your tftp application. I like to use tftpd32
3. in the tftp settings make sure you select the PXE compatibility option in the advanced section as seen below:
