    Great cookbok Victoria,many thanks!
    Could I ask you if there are some FortiSwitch models that allow me to have a real/physical stacking of FortiSwitches?

      Hi Kelso,

      I’m glad you enjoyed the episode. At this moment, stacking is only supported for FortiSwitches that are in FortiLink mode and being managed by a FortiGate’s Switch Controller. You can find more information about using FortiLink and which models support the feature here: http://docs.fortinet.com/uploaded/files/2742/manageFSWfromFGT54.pdf
