Since this Cloudgurad deployment design typically for inbound traffic, how should I check my application control and URL filtering are working or not. In the logs I could  not see only logs. Since cloudguard deployment typically for Inbound connections. Is there any specific setting should I make in order to work? Kindly advise.    Basically I just wants a log (because filtering would happen external load balacer(native AWS elb) and see my URLs.

Deployment failure in GCP - 504 Resource Error, Timeout expired.

We're having zero luck deploying the CheckPoint CloudGuard IaaS R80.30 High Availability in our enterprise GCP account.  In the GCP Deployment Manager, the deployment hangs for 30 minutes, eventually getting this error:{"ResourceType":"runtimeconfig.v1beta1.waiter","ResourceErrorCode":"504","ResourceErrorMessage":"Timeout expired."}I also get the same error if I launch the standalone gateway with External IP requested.  As a work-around, I can set the External IP to "None", watch the deployment succeed, then add it later.I do not have any problems deploying in my personal GCP account, so fairly certain this is a permissions or connectivity issue relating to API calls.

Migrate from AWS vSEC R80.10 to R80.30

We have been using vSEC R80.10 succesfully in AWS. One instance with both gateway and management.We got a notice that it will no longer be supported so we got the new R80.30 AMI from the AWS Marketplace.We activated our licenses but it seems the new AMI does not include the management server. It says in the marketplace description:"This BYOL distributed security gateway is managed from a central Security Management Server, which provides consistent security policy management, enforcement, and reporting AWS and hybrid deployments within a single pane of glass. The Security Management Server is not included in this offering. Please choose one of the CloudGuard IaaS Security Management offerings in AWS Marketplace."Does this mean we now have to runt TWO EC2 instances instead of one?  This would double operating costs.Any help to clarify this will be greatly appreciated.

NSX-V Redirect issue

 Hi mates, im working on a small nsx environment, previous to a POC on the production environment, the thing is that i have some issues putting the partner services redirection rules to work. I have some servers in 2 security groups, connected via tos logical switches and a nsx edge gw, but the trafic is only reaching the vmware distribute firewalls not the redirect ones. I guess im missing some basic config, but the sk is confussing on not complete at least for my understanding, and mixing that with the nsx complexitiy is making me hitting my head against the wall more than what i would like, any config pieces to check ? Has anyone faced any simillar issues ? Filters on the nsx manager. NSX-Manager> show dfw host host-506 filter nic-77726-eth0-vmware-sfw.2 rulesruleset domain-c481 {# generation number: 1576544216814# realization time : 2019-12-17T00:43:09rule 1003 at 1 inout protocol ipv6-icmp icmptype 136 from any to any accept;rule 1003 at 2 inout protocol ipv6-icmp icmptype 135 from any to any accept;rule 1002 at 3 inout protocol udp from any to any port 67 accept;rule 1002 at 4 inout protocol udp from any to any port 68 accept;rule 1001 at 5 inout protocol any from any to any drop;}ruleset domain-c481_L2 {# generation number: 1576544216814# realization time : 2019-12-17T00:43:09rule 1004 at 1 inout ethertype any stateless from any to any accept;}Filters specific to partner services, punt action as all the vms are under the same ESX,NSX-Manager> show dfw host host-506 filter nic-77726-eth0-serviceinstance-5.4 rulesruleset 1745 {# generation number: 0# realization time : 2019-12-17T00:43:10rule 1777 at 1 inout protocol any from addrset ip-securitygroup-19 to any punt with log;rule 1775 at 2 inout protocol any from any to addrset ip-securitygroup-19 punt with log;}ruleset 1745_L2 {# generation number: 0# realization time : 2019-12-17T00:43:10}Regards

Cloudguard backend routing problem

We're installing a CloudGuard IaaS High Availability using the latest deployment guide.We experience problem on the internal routing, the internal load balancer, automatically created with the template, seems not to route the traffic to the cloudguard appliance.On the management we do not see any traffic logs but if we configure a cluster ip address on the checkpoint backend network  using the address that should be configured to the backend-lb (.4) suddenly we see the traffic on the management, even the traffic from internet...The routing table assigned to the backend subnets and the routing on the checkpoint are configured as described on the guide. (strange that checkpoint route to a phantomatic .1 address and the internal subnets route to the backend loadbalancer ip .4)Any idea how to debug and solve this problem?ThanksAndy

AWS Migrate from Transit VPC to Transit GW - new or existing CME controller?

We are currently using the AWS Transit VPC solution as documented on the CheckPoint support site.We will be migrating to the AWS Transit GW solution and have reviewed both the Checkpoint deployment guide and sk153473.The one item we would like a recommendation on, is if we should configure a "new" AWS controller or if it is better to just add templates to the "existing" controller (both configured via autoprov-cfg) To provide our options command wise:autoprov-cfg add controller AWS -cn <NEW_CONTROLLER> ......-or-autoprov-cfg set controller AWS -cn <EXISTING_CONTROLLER> -ct <new_TGW_template> .... Thanks.
