    Default Problem with checkpoint R75.20

    hi, I hope I post this in the right section.

    I've got quite the problem with my checkpoint firewall:

    On one side, I've got a 2008 R2 AD server and on the other side the R75.20.

    When i try to use identity awerness to log on to the server with checkpoint (using ad querry), the connection starts, but at one point, there's a parsing error occurring and the connection is lost.

    At first, I thought it was a problem with NTLM, but I couldn't find where to check it's configuration on the firewall....

    Then, I used the portal connection instead, and it worked, BUT I need to use the ad querry type.

    So, here is my question: What/where do you think the problem is?

    Thanks in advance.

    Identity Awareness uses WMI to query the Event Logs of the Domain Servers configured in the Account Unit configured by Identity Awareness Wizard.

    It isn't using NTLM at all. The only authentication involved is the user account that you configure in the Account Unit settings to query the AD Server via WMI, and if you can browse through the Account Unit under the Users and Administrators then it isn't the Account that is the unit.

    What is reporting the Parsing Error?

    Do you have full connectivity between your Management Server and the Windows Server, the Gateway and the Windows Server and the SmartConsole and the Windows Server when this was configured.
