    Question Check Point Firewall-1

    Does anyone happen to know where I might find a tutorial, or technical papers for Check Point's firewall-1? I am interested in purchasing one, and am wanting to know what would be required to setup, and maintain it. And also what it is 100% capiable of. I have gotten the white paper off, and have searched google to no aval. (I even tried hotbot). on checkpoints webpage the configuration information is in a restricted (users) only section. Any information (reviews of it would be nice too) is appreciated.

    well, for information on CPFW-1 I have three suggestions. 1) check out the firewall 1 wizards mailing list. 2) 3) Our local CPFW-1 resource is in etsh is very knowledgable about CPFW-1 and other firewalls. So check out those first two resources, and get your butt in the IRC channel.

    Thanks for the info, I am reading thru option 2 right now, and joining the mailing list. I am sitting at work right now, (behind a firewall) so the IRC option has been blocked....but alas I shall try when I get home...
    Thanks again!

    What sort of interest do you have in CP documentation? are you looking for a manual or something? well, I know that the complete 4.0 manual is online at

    Well, also about being at work, what limits you form accessing IRC? strict rulebase? don't worry, I recently found a whole in CP's FTP security server that allows a user to bypass the rulebase regardless of what it says , I'll be talking more about it when CP fixes it.

    Hey Cheeseball, try this link, the author is Lance Spitzner who
    runs a honeynet so he should know what he's doing
    Make sure you checkout the --Building Your Firewall Rulebase-- link
    in the article, he uses Checkpoint as the demo

    Sorry, the Quick Reply function chopped off the link
    goto -> security -> firewalls -> auditing
    your firewall setup

    Hey all,

    Alex, that book *was* the best book about CP for some time, but for the mean time, I recommend Phoneboy's book <although Phoneboy'ss been talking some **** lately >. there is a sample at book/sample.pdf

    Are you interested in running this on a NT/W2k system?
    If not check out
    Not bad systems, we run a pair of vrrp gateway clusters. IP440's
    It can take a while to learn, can be very complex.
    Worth the effort in the end.
