Here are the top threads from the past week:

 

"fw ctl zdebug" Helpful Command Combinations 

Did you know fw ctl zdebug had so many useful combinations?

 

SmartConsole: Multiple ReadWrite sessions for same administrator 

This will be in R80.20. You can play with the Early Availability version now: Check Point R80.20 Production and Public EA

 

Grouping network objects in R80.10 

This feature does exist in R80.10 but had a bug, fixed in SmartConsole R80.10 build 42.

While not officially supported, you can do it with the following workaround.

 

Major rule-base performance improvements in latest R80.10 Jumbo Hotfix 

Good reason to upgrade to JHF113 or later

 

How can I test SMTP connection in SmartEvent 

Another good reason to upgrade to the latest jumbo hotfix.

 

Is there a command line batch change a large list of IPS protections to prevent? 

Using the R80.x Management API, yes you can. This wasn't possible on R77.x and earlier.

 

IPv6 NAT Support 

NAT64: something that didn't make the cut in R80.10 that is coming back to R80.20. Also looks like NAT46 is coming as well!

 

HTTPS Categorization ... a drama 

If you're troubleshooting why a site isn't categorizing properly (when it did previously), flushing the cache might not be a bad idea. 

 

How to create a TRUSTED ROOT CA? 

May be useful in contexts beyond UserCheck portals for SandBlast.
