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.

TCP 2010

FIBMGR - Forwarding Information Base Manager - Dynamic Routing Cluster configuration.

FIB Manager connections from / to cluster members on SecurePlatform OS with enabled Dynamic Routing.

From help in SmartDashboard R77.30: 

OSPF - Graceful restart
• Allow connections to port TCP 2010 over the sync network

From sk120355 

The routed process synchronizes OSPF and BGP routes via port 2010.

Hi Heiko,

great diagram - helps a lot.

Looks like TCP port 256 from Mgmt to GW is needed to fetch topology.

Also you may add this SK for reference:

I add port 256 in the next version.

Hello Heiko,

great picture. May it be possible to add two ports?

TCP/18264 on SmartCenter for fetching the CRL from the ICA (internal CA)

TCP/18265 on SmartCenter for accessing the ICA managemet Tool. Its very helpfull for checking certificates and their expiration-dates.

Best regards

Sascha

Should be 2010, not 2100.

If you install EndPoint Policy Management port 443 is no longer in use for GAIA. It will, by default, be moved to port 4434.

Secondary SmartConsole requires access to the port used above for any log tab that is not pointing directly to the SmartLog. (For example your SmartEvent, ....)

This can be a problem if high ports are blocked by default on another firewall.

I am not sure how to parse that information in the diagram you created. (Anyone a suggestion?)

LOM ports are not in the drawing (was mentioned there as well).

Required open TCP ports for LOM card functionality

Hi Jozko

I've been working hard with Check Point on this article R80.x Security Gateway Architecture (Logical Packet Flow)  the last few days and nights. That is why I have not reacted here.

Now to the topic:

I have a space problem in the A3 overview and I am converting it to a larger format. Please give me a few more days.

Regards,

Heiko

Hi Heiko,

as Jozko said this should be port TCP/2010 and not TCP/2100. Please correct this to prevent misconfigurations.

Thanks for your great work!

I agree that those should be mentioned. Especially TCP/18264 for first time connection to management server on R80. Otherwise you'll get an error "CRLs failed to be downloaded".

The R80.x API runs over port 443.

Hi Heiko,

maybe I found a missing communication channel.

What about Sandblast Detecting links to malicious files inside e-mails (sk115313)?

This needs communication to the internet. I am sure it is using http. No idea whether it can also use https or not.

Additionally TE appliance needs CPUSE and updates from Check Point, too.

Thanks for your excelent job.

Cheers

How about including the cluster-admin port between gateways of tcp/1129, I know this tripped me up when first deploying the feature, and it's not an implicit rule.
