I hope you're right and that we also get a new kernel with R80.10.
Another public EA build has dropped, it's primarily bug fixes.
One new feature I discovered is that you can now edit the logging on the Implicit rule at the end of the policy/layer.
This makes for somewhat cleaner policies.
There were several internal requests to add that feature as well. :)
Looks like another Public EA build has been released in the past couple days: EA363 T2.
As there are no updated release notes, I'm assuming it's just more bugfixes.
Updated kernel? or still 9 year old tech?
Hows tcpdump? is it 5+ years out of date too?
The small stuff counts. It the biggest complaint many of my customers have. CheckPoint's inability to do the small stuff well that impacts everyday operations. TACACS, SNMP, Alerting (ClusterXL failover) etc.
It blows peoples minds that checkpoint still doesn't sync user databases between the GAIA OS and the CheckPoint GUIs (admins).. or the getting SNMP stats from the CheckPoint kernel is so convoluted. I have to reboot after enabling SNMP? it wasn't already enabled?
Seriously.. why doesn't CheckPoint Dev hired some linux kernel developers? They should have rolled their linux distro by now. Just open a shop in North Carolina and get it done.
And don't get me started on how they do RPMs..
