 The FGCP is compatible with most network environments and most networking equipment. While initial configuration is relatively quick and easy, a large number of tools and configuration options are available to fine tune the cluster for most situations. The FGCP is compatible with most network environments and most networking equipment.

 +FGCP supports a feature called Virtual Clustering, which allows for an Active-Passive cluster of 2 devices to elect distinct master units for each VDOM. This results in more effective load-sharing between both units as VDOMs are made active on both devices. It can also act as a protection feature, e.g. with public internet VDOMs running on one unit and others on the other.

 The FGSP also includes configuration synchronization,​ allowing you to make configuration changes once for both FortiGate units instead of requiring duplicate configuration changes on each unit. Settings that identify the FortiGate unit to the network, for example, interface IP addresses and BGP neighbor settings, are not synchronized so each FortiGate unit maintains its identity on the network. These settings must be configured separately for each FortiGate unit. The FGSP also includes configuration synchronization,​ allowing you to make configuration changes once for both FortiGate units instead of requiring duplicate configuration changes on each unit.

-In previous versions of FortiOS the FGSP was called TCP session synchronization or standalone session synchronization. However, the FGSP has been expanded to include configuration synchronization and session synchronization of connectionless sessions, expectation sessions, and NAT sessions.+In previous versions of FortiOSthe FGSP was called TCP session synchronization or standalone session synchronization.
