Part 2 - Preparing the Lab


Our lectures are designed for mastering both theoretical and practical aspects of Check Point products. Before moving forward, we need to build a lab environment. All further discussions have in mind the virtualization lab setup described below.

Attention: this document refers to R80.10 version. You can use exactly the same settings to run any of R81.x versions in the lab.

Virtual Lab

The virtual lab layout is presented on the diagram below.





It consists of five virtual machines

  • Security Management Server (SMS)
  • Security Gateway (SG)
  • Lab User PC
  • PC with SmartConsole[1]
  • Windows Server (Active Directory and IIS are enabled)


Virtualization platform

While we are using VMware Workstation 14 in our lab, you can also use ESXI or Virtual box as a virtualization platform.

To install and setup all Check Point machines you need R81.20 Check Point ISO file. It can be found here
