    Q: The 1400 appliance type is missing in R77.30 / R80 SmartDashboard ?
    A: Check Point provides a procedure for R77.30 and R80 to add it.

    Q: Why do I have issues changing the filtering list of allowed MAC addresses for wireless connections ?
    A: This is a known issue in current releases. Only change wireless settings when you are directly connected to your 1400 Appliance. Changing wireless settings, such as the MAC address filtering list, when connected per WLAN (via Wi-Fi) leads to a permanent error in the configuration that won't even be resolved by connecting directly later on. Only a complete reset of the 1400 Appliance will currently help fixing this issue.

    Q: Why does my 1400 Appliance not perform as fast as my previous UTM-1 Edge N Appliance ?
    A: The 1400 Appliance performs far more security functions than a UTM-1 Edge N, thus why you are seeing differences in performance. By disabling blades you are not using in Home > Security Dashboard, performance should improve. Always keep in mind that a 1400 Appliance is Check Points smallest NGTP Appliance, designed for the best security even at small and home office environments. Since it's an Embedded Appliance running on an ARM CPU it's by design of the product that it's performance assets are quite limited. The more blades it has to run, the less the overall performance will be.

    Q: Why do I get an error when activating my Check Point 1400 Appliance ?
    A: It's always recommended to activate the Check Point 1400 Appliance manually. Therefore just generate and download the activation file in your Check Point UserCenter account. Then activate your 1400 Appliance with the downloaded activation file. Backup the activation file for later activations.
    A: As described in sk93382, doing the activation online can cause several errors, like 'Maximal number of activations exceeded.' or 'Cannot find registration information for the appliance in the Check Point User Center. Currently using trial license.'

    Q: Does the 1400 Appliance support clustering ?
    A: Of course. ClusterXL and Internet High Availability (HA) [Active/Standby] is fully supported. Only Internet Load Sharing (LS) is supported though. This applies for local and central management.

    Q: How can I create a custom boot script / disable SecureXL permanently ?
    A: sk65015 describes a solution where a custom userScript can be created that will be loaded after each reboot. It's actually as simple as putting your commands or scripts containing full paths in /pfrm2.0/etc/userScript
    Code:
    [Expert@fw]# cd /pfrm2.0/etc/
    [Expert@fw]# vi userScript
    [Expert@fw]# chmod 777 userScript
    Q: How is synchronization configured in a 1400 Appliance cluster ?
    A: The Sync interface is usually configured on LAN2. Using the wireless interface as the Sync interface is not supported.
    A: Before configuring a local cluster, make sure that the sync interface is unassigned by checking the Device > Local Network page in the WebUI.
    A: sk52500 describes how to configure a Sync interface other than LAN2.

    Q: How can I quickly check the top firewall policy rule hits ?
    A: Login to your 1400 Appliance via SSH. Enter the command: show rule-hits

    Q: How can I securely copy files via scp to/from my 1400 Appliance ?
    A: Just enable Scp access with this expert-mode command: bashUser on
    Code:
    [Expert@fw]# bashUser on
    user: admin
    
    Bash login enabled.
    Scp access enabled.
    
    Note:
            Your default shell will now be bash,
            and when you login you will enter expert mode.
            We recommend that you use clish as your default shell,
            and move to expert mode only when necessary.
            You can move from bash to clish using the "clish" command.
            To restore your default shell to clish run "bashUser off"
    A: Disable Scp access after copying your files via: bashUser off
    Code:
    [Expert@fw]# bashUser off
    user: admin
    
    Bash login disabled.
    Scp access disabled.
    Cpshell enabled.
    A: sk52763 describes the same procedure for using WinSCP.

    Q: Can I run my own scripts on the 1400 Appliance ?
    A: Yes. They will not survive a firmware upgrade though, so keep track of your additions/modifications and recreate them after upgrading.

    Q: How can I save local backups most easily ?
    A: Just connect a standard FAT-formatted USB stick to the back or front USB port of your 1400 Appliance as a local storage device for backups.
    Code:
    clish> backup settings to usb
    Creating backup...
    Uploading backup_filename.zip to the USB device
    Upload complete
    Your settings have been successfully backed up and saved on your USB drive
    A: Please note: An empty backup file will be created if the 1400 Appliance just runs with a trial license. To overcome this issue, you'd need to backup the specific files manually.

    Q: Is dynamic routing supported ?
    A: Of course.

    Q: Which ports do I need to allow in order for my 1400 Appliance to be able to talk to my Check Point Security Management / Log Server ?
    A: sk93566 lists the ports that need to be allowed. Usually it's:

    1: Src - Any, Dst - Security Management server IP, TCP port 18210 (service FW1_ica_pull)
    2: Src - Any, Dst - Security Management server IP, TCP port 18191 (service CPD)
    3: Src - Any, Dst - Log Server server IP, TCP port 257 (service FW1_log)

    Q: How can I set up a certificate based VPN on my 1100 / 1400 Appliance ?
    A: Danny Jung has written an article about Certificate based VPNs with Check Point appliances.

    Q: How can I troubleshoot VPN issues on my 1100 /1400 Appliance ?
    # Web UI
    A: Check for any related VPN log entries at Logs & Monitoring > Security Logs
    A: Check the status of your VPN tunnels at VPN > VPN Tunnels
    A: Test your VPN configuration at VPN > VPN Sites

    # Console
    A: You can do a full IKE debug in Expert Mode via these steps:
    Step 1: Turn on VPN debug mode: vpn debug tunc; vpn debug on TDERROR_ALL_ALL=5
    Step 2: Recreate the VPN issue
    Step 3: Turn off VPN debug mode: vpn debug off; vpn debug ikeoff
    Step 4: Copy $FWDIR/log/ike.elg to your PC and inspect it with IKEView

    Q: How can I disable the First Time Configuration Wizard ?
    A: The First Time Configuration Wizard will be disabled by default after completing it.
    A: You might also disable it manually by executing the following command at the console: set property first-time-wizard off
    Code:
    $ ssh -l admin 192.168.1.1
    admin@192.168.1.1's password: 
    > Welcome to CLISH. The First Time Configuration wizard was not completed yet
    > NOTE: The First Time Configuration wizard may delete or override some of the settings you set in CLISH
    > To disable the First Time Configuration wizard (and USB automatic configuration) please run "set property first-time-wizard off"
    
    clish>
    Q: How can I run the First Time Configuration Wizard again ?
    A: You can run it once by entering the following command at the console: set property first-time-wizard once

    Q: How do I successfully establish a VPN connection with a locally managed 1100 Appliance using certificates ?
    A: While the Check Point 1100 Appliance was primarily designed to be centrally managed in corporate enterprise networks it is also possible that there is a locally (i.e. externally managed) 1100 Appliance that needs to be configured for a VPN connection to your corporate Check Point VPN gateway / cluster. Even dynamically assigned IP address (DAIP) gateway solutions which have to keep up a permanent VPN tunnel to the corporate office are possible. sk94028 describes the full configuration procedure.

    Q: How do I set up certificate based VPNs with my Check Point 1100 / 1400 appliance ?
    A: Please read my article about how to set up certificate based VPNs.

    Q: Why does no traffic pass through the VPN tunnel between my 1400 Appliances and an interoperable device ?
    A: You probably forgot to mark the interoperable device as a Check Point gateway as described here.

    Q: Which clustering technology is being used by the Check Point 1400 Appliances ?
    A: Check Point ClusterXL.

    Q: Can I configure a locally managed Check Point 1400 Appliance cluster by using two different 1400 models ?
    A: Yes. However, clusters should be always configured using identical cluster nodes for better consistency, stability and reliability.

    Q: Can I configure a Check Point 1400 Appliance cluster with cluster nodes running on different firmwares ?
    A: No. This would lead into the following error:


    Q: Is there any other limitation when considering to run Check Point 1400 Appliances in clustering mode ?
    A: Yes, you can't neither use switches nor bridges in the local configuration of your 1400 Appliances.


    Q: How do I know if my inactive cluster node became active when running Check Point 1400 Appliances in clustering mode ?
    A: In centralized management just check SmartView Monitor. In local management you'll receive a notification in the WebUI.


    Q: How do I know if my active cluster node became inactive when running Check Point 1400 Appliances in clustering mode ?
    A: In centralized management just check SmartView Monitor. In local management you'll receive a notification in the WebUI.


    Q: When running Check Point 1400 Appliances in clustering mode, how can I manually change the activity of the cluster nodes ?
    A: In centralized management just change the priority of the cluster nodes in the cluster object properties and install the security policy.
    A: In local management you can force a member down by hitting the button 'Force Member Down' in the WebUI of the specific cluster node.
    A: You can always use the typical ClusterXL commands at the console to control your Check Point 1100 Appliance cluster. (i.e. clusterXL_admin up/down)

    Q: I configured a Check Point 1400 Appliance cluster but still keep getting errors ?
    A: Don't forget to reboot your Check Point 1400 Appliances right after the cluster configuration in order to get the cluster working. Otherwise you might see blocked connections for the service 'CP_Cluster_sync' in your log files.


    Q: I keep getting an 'Error during OS sync' at the end of my Check Point 1400 Appliance cluster configuration ?
    A: To overcome this issue just reboot your Check Point 1400 Appliance without closing the error window shown below.


    Q: Why are connections to TCP port 443 blocked on my 1400 Appliance ?
    A: Because this port is already being used by the Visitor Mode functionality for Remote Access users. sk93746 provides a solution.

    Q: Why is my VoIP phone not working behind my locally managed 1400 Appliance ? Why does my IPS blade still blocks SIP traffic with the error message 'IPS - SIP data malformed or Error with SIP data.' even after I turned it off ?
    A: Because on Check Point 1400 Appliances that are locally manged, the implicit policy rules of the IPS blade are working, even if the blade is turned off or an exception rule is created. sk93200 provides a solution by changing the default port (5060) of the SIP_TCP and SIP_UDP objects and creating two new ones. This circumvents the content inspection engine and therefore will allow your VoIP phone to work.

    Q: How do I to create an "Allow and Forward" rule on my locally managed 1400 Appliance ?
    A: sk93588 describes how to make use of the server types for this.

    Q: Is a 19" rack mount kit available for my 1400 Appliances ?
    A: Yes, just order the 1400 rack mount kit accessory which will allow housing two 1400 Appliances side-by-side in a 19” wide rack.

    Q: Is there an online DEMO of the 1400 appliance avaiable ?
    A: While there isn't an online demo for the 1400, there is one for the 700 which is very similar to the 1400 when locally managed.

    --------------------------------------
    700 Appliance online demo
    Login: demo
    Password: checkpoint
    --------------------------------------

    Q: What's missing ?
    A: The integrated Terminal Console Window that the GAiA Portal features.
    A: A visual overview about all ports and their connection status, similar to what the UTM-1 Edge offered under Network > Ports.
    A: More information on the System Information page. Like cluster status, VPN status, connected USB sticks or SD cards etc.
    A: An option to allow two or more Admins to login to the WebUI at the same time.

    Yes, both the 700 and 1400 series run embedded Gaia. The 730/750 are the same hardware as the 1430/1450 and the 770/790 the same as the 1470/1490.

    As with the previous generation (600/1100) the only difference is that the SMB models (700 Series) are managed by SMP whereas the 1400 series are managed through Smart Dashboard. If you don't need central management then there is no possible reason for paying the premium for the 1400 appliances.

    Doesn't the 1400 have a much higher port density though? 700 lost 2 ports (has 6) compared to 600/1100 (has 8).

    No.

    The 730/750/1430/1450 have 6 LAN and 2 WAN, the 770/790/1470/1490 all have 16 LAN and 2 WAN ports.

    At present you cannot assign any of the LAN ports for use as additional WAN connections (even on the 18 Port hardware) but that's something I've already fed back as a wish list. The only difference between the hardware amongst the two groups is the colour of the case (1400 is black and 700 is white).

    oh wow.. the 750 has 16 lan ports? Nice that changes things. I'm looking at one of those for the casa.

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    why would you want to use an extra lan interface vs a DMZ interface (or do they not have a DMZ interface)? I'm doing that now with a 1200R. Granted is all dynamic routing.

    ok wait, the 700 data sheet makes it look like the 750 has 6 lan ports.

    There are any number of reasons why my may want multiple WAN ports. The secondary WAN is labelled as a WAN2/DMZ but in practice you can duplicate DMZ functionality by breaking the LAN ports into separate switches.

    That's exactly as I said, and the 770/790 has 16 LAN ports.

    That's almost exactly as I said, and the 770/790 has 16 LAN ports.
    Technically you said it has both 6 ports and 16 ports, but i think i got it now.

    Well there is another important feature if you enable the central management on 1100 Series ypu are able to do the https inspection.
    (the full SSL inspection is supported when the appliance is centrally managed).

    Will there be an update the R77.30 that adds support for the 1400 series?

    Or would we just add them as 1100s?

    A - Likely, though nothing yet.

    A - For now, this is the way to go.

    There should be no issue adding the devices as 1100 series devices for now (the policy compilation process is the same for 600/700/1100/1200R/1400 appliances).
    There should be an update soon that allows you to add it explicitly as a 1400.

    The 1430 does not blink a Red light like the 1140 does when a line within the autoconf.clish file hits an error. I can say one thing for sure, Checkpoint is consistently inconsistent.

    I'm not a big fan of autoconf.clish anyway. I like being able to set things outside of clish. fwkern.conf setting, bashUser, KVM visor mode, packet modulation, CoreVPN phaser mazer, George Clinton youtube redirector service, Ex Kay Si Dee emulation. You know, basically all that good stuff.

    Has anyone got snmp working with 14xx? tcpdump shows the snmp packets hitting the firewall but it is not responding and can't see any logs generated. have tried v2 and v3. snmpd daemon is running.

    Also is there any equivalent to the "save config" command? Is there requirement to save config after change in clish?

    No requirement to 'save config' in Gaia embedded.

    Hi, Thanks for this presentation.

    How many interfaces WAN can we have on GAIA Embedded ?

    On the configuration, it says
    You can configure a single Internet connection or multiple connections in High Availability or Load
    Balancing configurations.
    We don't know how many. I have a need around five interfaces WAN.

    Cheers
