I always thought of having a simple Bash script that would allow me to run common Check Point CLI tasks without having to crawl for command cheat sheets, bookmarks, google, manuals, knowledge base etc.

Moti Sagey's  Top 3 Check Point CLI commands thread inspired me to start this project, allowing everyone to suggest new enhancements, improvements and share their ideas.


To install the script on your Check Point, in Expert mode simply run :

curl_cli | zcat > /usr/bin/ccc && chmod +x /usr/bin/ccc

Or download it to the /usr/bin directory of your Check Point and make it executable.
