Recently I had the need to show the MTU of an Fortinet Fortigate firewall interface. By default, if there are no changes the MTU will be 1500. But in this case I needed to be able to show that the MTU was 1500.
Few commands I tried did not show the exact info I needed, for example- Get hardware nic port1 – showed lots of great info but not the MTU.
To get this info I needed to do an Ifconfig from the Fortigate. to do this I ran the command:
fnsysctl ifconfig -a port1 Port1 being the port I needed to get the info for. Check out the screenshot below. Lots of other great info such as dropped packets and MAC.
The Dell FX2 is a pretty awesome piece of hardware. I mostly only work on it from the networking side.
From the CMC you can console to each of your switch modules. I had a hard time finding documentation on the very simple command to do this. From doing a quick ? and scanning through each command I found “Connect” Pretty fast, and knew that would be it …. but connect to what?
I finally found from searching a different help command that you can do
This will allow you to access each of your switches from the CMC. Check the below screenshot out.
