Here are the top threads from the past week:

 

Index Files option for R80.10 

Even though there isn't a GUI option for this in R80.10 as in past releases, it appears you can add a file that has the appropriate settings in it.

 

What is the Usage of "export" command 

If you're trying to export the configuration of a gateway, it works a little different on Check Point than it does with some other vendors.

 

Is R80.10 Publish same as R77 Save? 

Not exactly, and it's not a bad thing.

We have fw ctl zdebug commands documented in various Advanced Technical Resource Guides, but this is an attempt to consolidate the useful ones into one place.

 

Enabling Identity Awareness Globally 

Unfortunately this is not currently possible.

You might want to check a few other things first before doing this.
