CPUG: The Check Point User Group

Resources for the Check Point Community, by the Check Point Community.


First, I hope you're all well and staying safe.
Second, I want to give a "heads up" that you should see more activity here shortly, and maybe a few cosmetic changes.
I'll post more details to the "Announcements" forum soon, so be on the lookout. -E

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    I've figured out enough about contextual menus to allow for object deletion.

    This required more "fun" with Objective-C selectors. Selectors are basically function calls, but you can't pick...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    While figuring out some menu stuff, I decided it's time to learn more about how localization works on macOS (this was actually to help me reliably place the "Add Object" menu in the menubar). Turns...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    Took a bit longer than I thought to finish shaving some other yaks and get back to directly working on this project. I'm happy to report I was able to figure out enough about menus to allow for the...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    Now that I have a good way to build an MDS for testing, I'm starting to work with the multi-domain parts of the API. This leads to a big question:

    How should connecting to an MDS work?

    It would...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    Finding some rough edges when it comes to application/site objects and their relationships with categories. Suspending my work on that for now.

    I think I've figured out how to make new objects. It...

    Gave up on the progress meter for now, and learned to do this instead:

    I now have support for dragging objects from the sidebar into the source, destination, and service fields of rules,...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    At some point, sure. For now, I figure I have about 20% the functionality of SmartDashboard. Lots left to add, but it's mostly view-side code in MVC. The object model changes put me in a better...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    Spent a while completely rewriting my entire import architecture and my entire object model. Previously I had been using one single object definition for everything. Hosts, networks, services,...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    No screenshots to really show this off, but a small update.

    I have just made my first successful API call to change the properties of an object based on changes made locally in my client.

    While...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    Made some advances and thought I would show them off.

    Dark mode actually worked perfectly right out of the gate.

    Dramatically improved login. That's the phone button at the far left of...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    Ran into some issues, which stalled my progress for a while. I decided the fix was to rewrite most of the UI. Still not done with that, and still not past the issues in question, but I think I'm...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    Still working on the ordering of empty sections.

    Since I last posted, I have:

    Added NAT rulebase display.
    Added a picker to choose the policy package you want to view. It also has a special...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    For my initial development, I skipped dealing with certificates and so on. Instead, I coded it to use custom TLS trust evaluation, and to blindly trust any certificate presented by a particular IP...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    Your comment did remind me I forgot to handle cell negation. Simple enough fix. I just added a "negate" variable in my cell view, and fed it the appropriate value from the working row. SwiftUI is...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    That's actually the thing I find most disappointing about the API. It was a chance for a clean break. You could have provided a VCS like Hg or Git (or even non-distributed; something like SVN), but...

    It's 100% Swift 5.2. It's a very nice language. Easy to reason about. Automatic reference counting for memory management, a good static analyzer, good exception handling capabilities.

    I was not aware, but web applications are universally pretty awful. You have reduced working space due to the browser's chrome on top of the application chrome. In-page state interacts in really...

    Re: SmartDashboard on macOS

    Funny this should be the most recent thread in the off-topic forum. I was just trying to determine where to ask if anybody was interested in a little application I've been working on.
