Let’s say we have 2 hosts within the same subnet (10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2 under a /24 broadcast).
Both hosts are connected directly to a CheckPoint firewall. The CheckPoint firewall is the default gateway for those 2 hosts. By default, when these 2 hosts talk to each other, is the FW security rules applied?
If not, is there a way to “force” the 2 hosts to pass through the security rules first? The goal is to completely isolate those 2 hosts, even if they are on the same subnet.
