Only Base Layer 3 features are supported in FGS which includes IPv4 static routes, RIP route advertisement, VRRP, virtual and routed interfaces, and DHCP relay & you do not need to upgrade the firmware from 4.3.02 to have the above features. Full L3 is supported in certain other FastIron switch models such as X-series.
