Share your Check Point Memorabilia for a chance to have it autographed by Gil Shwed!

I know some of you have some old Check Point memorabilia in your closets. Clean it out, snap a picture of it, post it on this thread! Who knows, you might win an opportunity to have Gil Shwed autograph it!

 

R77.30 to R80.10 upgrade issue 

While many upgrades go successfully automatically, some do require help from the TAC. Some potential things to look for when it fails are in this thread. Also, you may want to make sure your CPUSE version is up to date, as suggested in this thread: Upgrade from 77.30 to 80.10 problem

Can we get the routes from R80?

While there is not a specific API for this, there is a way to get the information. Check the thread for details!

There is an equivalent to dbedit -local in R80+, which can be useful in scripts that run on the management and perform automated functions.
