First and foremost I built this solution to solve a problem a couple of coworkers were having with inconstant and large data sets needing to be pivoted quickly.
In the sample network configuration, NAT Static or Hide for the Security Management server IP address can be configured in one click, while still allowing connectivity with managed gateways. All gateways can be controlled from the Security Management server, and logs can be sent to Static or dynamic checkpoint Security Management server.
When using the Security Management behind NAT feature, the remote gateway automatically selects the Security Management address to be addressed and simultaneously applies NAT considerations.
In this case, define the masters and loggers manually, to allow the remote gateway to contact the Security Management server using the required address. When an inbound connection from a managed gateway enters the Security Gateway, port translation is used to translate the hide address to the real IP address of the Security Management server.
To define masters and loggers, select Use local definitions for Log Servers and Use local definitions for Masters and specify the correct IP addresses on the gateway. This solution encompasses different scenarios: Only one object can be defined with these settings, unless the second object is defined as a Secondary Security Management server or as a Log server.
Ensure that you properly define the Topology settings on all gateways. All workarounds required for previous versions still function with no changes in their behavior.
Do not select Hide behind Gateway address 0. Do not select All. Select Apply for Security Gateway control connections. On the Security Gateway Topology page, define the Interface.
IP Pool NAT ensures proper routing for encrypted connections for the following two connection scenarios: Return packets in the connection must be routed back through the same gateway in order to maintain the connection. To ensure that this occurs, each of the MEP gateways maintains a pool of IP addresses that are routable to the gateway.
When a connection is opened to a server, the gateway substitutes an IP address from the IP pool for the source IP address. Reply packets from the server return to the gateway, which restores the original source IP address and forwards the packets to the source. Defining an IP pool per interface solves routing issues that occur when the gateway has more than two interfaces.
Sometimes it is necessary that reply packets return to the gateway through the same gateway interface. If a remote client opens a connection to the internal network, reply packets from hosts inside the internal networks are routed to the correct gateway interface through the use of static IP pool NAT addresses.
The addresses in the IP pool can be routed only through that gateway interface so that all reply packets from the target host are returned only to that interface. The routing tables on the routers that lie behind the gateway must be edited so that addresses from a gateway IP pool are returned to the correct gateway interface.
For additional information, contact Check Point Technical Support. New back connections for example, X11 can be opened to the NATed host. User-to-IP server mapping of protocols that allow one connection per IP can work with a number of hosts instead of only one host.
The order of NAT priorities are: If a pool contains N addresses, then any number of clients can be assigned an IP from the pool as long as there are no more than N clients per server.
Using IP Pool allocation per destination, two different clients can receive the same IP from the pool as long as they communicate with different servers. When reusing addresses from the IP Pool, back connections are supported from the original server only.
This means that connections back to the client can be opened only from the specific server to which the connection was opened. In this mode, if an IP pool contains 20 addresses, up to 20 different clients can be NATed and back connections can be opened from any source to the client.
In the gateway General Properties page, ensure the gateway version is specified correctly. For each gateway or gateway interface, create a network object that represents its IP pool NAT addresses. The IP pool can be a network, group, or address range.
For example, for an address range, do the following: In the General tab, enter the first and last IP of the address range. The new address range appears in the Address Ranges branch of the network objects tree.
If required, select one or more of the following options: Return unused addresses to IP Pool after: Addresses in the pool are reserved for t60 minutes defaulteven if the user logs off.How to setup Site-to-Site VPN between Microsoft Azure and an on premise Check Point Security Gateway Static routing (PolicyBased) VPN gateway: Dynamic routing (RouteBased) VPN gateway: IKE Version: IKEv1: Dynamic Routing Gateway IPsec Security Association.
I’ve been reviewing a network that has some CheckPoint firewalls that have been unstable, and while this isn’t surprising (in my experience, it’s common for Checkpoint firewalls to be unstable for some reason or the other), this time I’ve been faced with Checkpoint Clustering.
