Deploy Identity Awareness Agent with Microsoft SCCM - Full Client with MAD and Packet Tagging

So I've got another issue with the Identity Awareness Agent. This time its the deployment from Microsoft SCCM. SCCM will run the installation as SYSTEM. Installation works, and all seems good. For some reason the MAD service doesn't work as expected. It doesn't provide the computer account to the gateway, and when you try to restart the Check Point Managed Asset Detection service, it crashes and completely stops working. Also the Packet Tagging driver doesn't work properly. It says its enabled, but the packet tagging never happens.Installing the same packet as Admin manually works perfectly. So is there any work-around for this? Or am I missing something? I would prefer not to have to manually install the agent on every computer. There are just to many to even think about going that way. Our SCCM guy says you can do a really ugly work around and have a admin account run the the installation from SCCM, but this is very much not recommended, and it won't work if you want it installed as a part of the task sequence, Any tips on how to do this?

LOM settings - Direct acces onto Remote Console

We have multiple 5000 Appliance and to have a more direct way to access "Remote Console". Currently we have to login per https on to the LOM - Management Interface. And start JViewer to access Remote Console.I am looking for alternative. I used on openserver to use vnc to access directly the Remote console Window!!How can i start the "Remote Console" using different Tool? I would prefer not to use a Webbrowser...

skype for business issues

Hi, I am facing an issue where VOIP calls from our Polycom device to Skype for business online are dropped after about 1 minute. The drops are one-way (incoming voice) which looks like the incoming SIP traffic is dropped. The topology is quite simple: Polycom --> CP GW --> Internet --> Skype for Business online some insights: 1. the problem doesn't occur when connecting the Polycom directly to the internet via a hotspot. so it is a Check point issue 2. issue still occurs when disabling SecureXL so it is not a SXL issue 3. Hide NAT changes source port for SIP over UDP IP is checked in inspection settings 4. No IPS drops on VOIP. The Polycom IP is excluded from IPS and all inspection settings 5. we see incoming connections from the Skype for business online IP range are blocked by the stealth rule the last point made me think that it might be a NAT issue with SIP ports range (outgoing connections are NATed but incoming connections are not recognized by the firewall as part of the same connection)I see the following drops coming from Skype for business online IP range to the GW external IP address My questions are:Are there any best practices to configure Skype for business with Check Point What is the recommendation for NAT with SIP?Any insights on how to solve this issue

VPN with Forcepoint Cloud

We need to establish a VPN between Check Point to Forcepoint Cloud. We review the configuration and the tunnel is not working. Could you share if it is possible? We need to re-direct all web traffic at Forcepoint.

Issue with identity agent R80.

Hello everybody,We have migrated our appliance checkpoint on R80.20 version few weeks ago. We have terminal servers for users remote connexions on Windows server 2012R2. We have installed the identity agent version R80.102.1004 and we hadn't any problems but I tried the new version R80. and now we don't have all users authenticted on the servers it's very strange.Does someone had the same issue with this agent verion ? and found ans issue ? Regards,

R80.20 SecureXL - User Space?

I keep seeing in the excellent documents by @HeikoAnkenbrand and posts by @PhoneBoy that SecureXL runs in user space starting in R80.20. After a detailed look at an R80.20 security gateway I don't think this assertion is correct and I'm seeking clarification, I believe this is some kind of mixup with the new USFW function which is available in R80.20 but not enabled by default. What I see on a standard R80.20 gateway is that the SecureXL kernel driver code has ballooned from 5.2MB in R80.10 to about 18MB in R80.20 and is now named with an instance number (i.e. simmod_0) which would allow multiple instances of SecureXL to be running; useful in the case of Falcon cards. The size of the simmod code would certainly have grown since it is now capable of PSL and CPAS whereas those functions were handled in a Firewall Worker instance (fw_X) before. The firewall worker kernel instance code (fw_X) has also grown from about 40MB to 48MB between R80.10 and R80.20. There is a new SecureXL-related daemon called sxl_statd in R80.20 but its functions seem to be very simple and its small size (38K) makes it impossible that it is "SecureXL running in user space". I can't seem to find any other processes that would be "SecureXL running in User Space" unless it is somehow now part of the fw_worker_X processes which I find unlikely. So as a bit of an experiment I enabled USFW under R80.20 according to the instructions in sk149973: How to enable USFW (User-Space Firewall) on a 23900 appliance on my 8-core VMware firewall (2/6 split) and rebooted. In the kernel with lsmod I still see the 18MB simmod_0 but now there is only one firewall kernel driver called fwmod at 48MB. In process space I only see one firewall worker (fwk), but I also see "fwk_wd -i 6 -i6 0" and fwk_forker so I'm pretty sure more fwk firewall workers would get forked off if needed. It still looks like SecureXL is completely in kernel space. The whole justification for USFW is due to the 2GB kernel limitation that was being reached by trying to load up to 40 separate instances of the firewall workers into the kernel, in R80.20 if there are 40 workers * 48MB = 1.9 GB so it makes sense that Check Point couldn't just keep adding more and more workers in the kernel. However there is only one SecureXL simmod kernel driver and it takes up a "whopping" 18MB of kernel space, so it doesn't make sense to me to move that part into user space. So unless I'm really missing something here I don't think the assertion that "SecureXL is in user space" is correct, at least not in R80.20, regardless of whether USFW is enabled or not. Edit: Just looked over R80.30 and set USFW on it too, looks exactly the same as what I observed in R80.20 above.

UserCheck Block Page Times Out

We just cut over to our 5400 cluster, and during testing the Block Page displayed fine. Today during the cutover however, the block page seems to keep timing out. We aren't doing much on the block page but telling them why they were blocked and to contact us if they feel it's in error. If I do an incognito tab and then sometimes that will work but most of the time it times out as well. I have a ticket open but wanting to see if anyone else has had this problem. We aren't doing any https inspection...not ready for that nightmare. Just URL filtering.

PCoIP connectivity issues when installing policy, R80.20

Hi,We have a newly upgraded 15000 Appliance Cluster to R80.20 T47, only Firewall and IA blades are activated on this cluster.We did not have this issues before with r77.30, Now when we install policy, all VDI (PCoIP) connections are disrupted, some close totally and some reconnects but still gets disconnected. It seems to happen when it has been longer than about 1h after the latest install, if an installation is done in 20-30 minutes since the last one we don´t seem to get the issue.I've tested to increase the "end timeout R80" global setting from 5 to 20 as it was before but still the same issue is occurring. I cannot see anything unusual in the logs och anything with a zdebug drop. I'll troubleshoot with TAC on monday but wanted to see if anyone has any ideas on what this could be caused by and what more to check?RegardsSvante

fw monitor output

Hi All,I need some help with fw monitor output. (R80.20 gaia T47)Our GRE/SIP communication doesn't work, and as you can see below, the last captured packet was stopped in pre-outbound (o4) chain position. It is the tunnel-inside traffic.We have bidirectional rules between peers without NAT.Could you please somebody explain what caused this behavior? Here is also the relevant wireshark capture:There are many articles/ cheat sheets ,etc. about how fw monitor is working, but i cant find any information about the output interpretation... in chain (14):0: -7fffffff (0000000000000000) (00000000) SecureXL inbound (sxl_in)1: -7ffffffe (0000000000000000) (00000000) SecureXL inbound CT (sxl_ct)2: -7f800000 (ffffffff8a32eb80) (ffffffff) IP Options Strip (in) (ipopt_strip)3: -

Identity Awareness Agent packaging

Hi all, I'm trying to create a custom MSI file for a client, where we can do a silent install without any interaction required from the user itself.However, when trying to run the MSI with silent installation, the package still gives a message that no server is configured. When I click "ok" - the IA agent directly connects and authenticates and status is OK.Does anybody know how to get rid of this message? (see below my configuration). ConfigurationFollowed the instructions of Identity Awareness R80.10 Administration Guide on Autodiscovery DNS.Nslookup for verification:C:\Users\sean>nslookup -type=SRV CHECKPOINT_NAC_SERVER._tcp.mycompany Server: dc13.mycompany Address: x.x.x.x CHECKPOINT_NAC_SERVER._tcp.mycompany SRV service location: priority = 0 weight = 0 port = 443 svr hostname = cpia.mycompany cpia.mycompany internet address = y.y.y.y The certificate on the gateway has been replaced my a certificate of the company itself. I've downloaded the most recent Identity Awareness Agent (Full - EXE + MSI) from: sk134312Installed the EXE as a Full client with the MAD service and auto-discovery.Trusted the gateway - status is authenticated (so OK). Next, ran the IAConfigTool.exe with the following settings: And used the created MSI to install on a fresh computer (with administrative privilege).Installation done with: CMD.exe (run as admin):msiexec.exe /i "Check_Point_Identity_Agent.msi" /quietBut I still get the message. Does anybody know a solution?Would the " remote registry option" be the solution? Thanks! Sean

Site-To-Site connectivity and application access

HiAfter migration to checkpoint firewall 5900 (R80.10) at two geographically separated sites, network access from one site to another does not work, when the tunnel terminating on the edge routers of the two sites is in place. But as soon as the tunnel is removed between the two edge routers network access is enabled and applications across the sites become accessible.Kindly help to fix the issue.ThanksBS Bhatia
