R80.x Ports Used for Communication by Various Check Point Modules

Introduction

This drawing should give you an overview of the used R80 and R77 ports respectively communication flows. It should give you an overview of how different Check Point modules communicate with each other. Furthermore, services that are used for firewall operation are also considered. These firewall services are also partially mapped as implied rules in the set on the firewall.

Great stuff!

Thank you for the diagram. It will be helpful.

Maybe you can complement with the connections that are used to update services or signatures, like IPS is the SmartDashboard that goes online if it's a manual update, the application control is the smart center, etc, etc. 

Regards,

Ivo

Hello,

Thanks, usefull diagram for R77. Would be very interesting for R80.XX! Smiley Happy

We tried to get such information from the Support for R80.10 after we found out that opening 19009 was mandatory between management servers and log servers (DBsync<->CPM).

As per our Diamond Engineer it seems that R&D think it's not necessary to add the information in sk52421... Smiley Sad 

Highlighted

THX for this info.

I checked this port 19009. See Wireshark:

I think this is the database query from the DashBoard to the Management Server.

Check Point KB SK says:

I will add the R80.xx ports in the next version.

Regards,

Heiko

I have added R80 ports.

Hello Heiko, I know that SmartConsole R80.10 needs TCP19009 to connect to the management server, this is explained in the sk Smiley Happy

But what the sk does not explains is that all management servers (including dedicated log servers) need to connect to each other using TCP19009. We noticed that when we noticed CPM packets dropped between our management servers (including dedicated log servers).

Nice R80 port update!

You can add routing protokolls.

I add this in the next version. thx

Hi heiko, such an overview, I have been looking for 10 years

To be clear, we've had an SK with the this information for years.

Back in my books, I did have a diagram showing some of this.

This is definitely a more complete diagram.

Highlighted

I think Dameon is right about his statement. This information has been available since version 4.0 FW-1 and I have been working with Check Point since version 3.
A very good overview of the ports can also be found in sk52421. This article is available since 12-Aug-2010 and longer.  I have already seen this in version 4.0 at Check Point User Center.

Over the years I have also found many good diagrams in books.

Why do I make a diagram?

I think a picture says more than 1000 words!

Please help us with good ideas to expand the chart.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Heiko

A picture like this one is definitely saying much more than words Smiley Happy

There is also TCP8211 between management servers and log servers.

Highlighted

Is it me. Or am I missing RADIUS itself? And TACACS can also be used to authenticate.

Do you think you can squeze these into the drawing?

Highlighted

Thx

Port 8211 is from R80 Multi-Domain Security Management Server to the Log Server.

I have not yet drawn up any communication for multi-domain management, vsx and 41/61K SyncXL.

But I'll do that in another drawing.Unfortunately, no more objects fit on an A3 sheet. But it will come!

Heiko
