Connecting CheckPoint Management Server using SOCKS Proxy


I'm trying to connect to checkpoint Web API using socks proxy. Would CheckPoint support request via SOCKS Proxy?

Provided what comes toward the management server is a regular HTTPS connection, I don't see why not.
Note that none of Check Point's standard tools support usage via a SOCKS proxy.

The output of API status suggests that all IPs are not, in fact, allowed to access the API server.
Did you publish the change and restart the API server afterwords?
