Fortimail and cisco cables

In this post I will demostrate the usage of cisco cables SFP-H10GB-CU3M enlew of  SFPs for connecting a FML to a cisco 6509-E.

Most if not ALL Fortinet gear, is pretty much cisco compatible for ALL SFPs that I've used in the past.  You can pretty much use any standard  badged/labeled  cisco SFPs in fortunate gear and it will work.

Here's the  FML 3KD  configuration for the SFP slot interface in the back.

No on the switch I was surprised that cisco showed there own cables not compatible .

NOTE: I'm using the service unsupported transceiver commands on this switch btw.

service unsupported-transceiver

The  cisco gear works find and provides layer2 connectivity to the 3000D FML appliance
