CP FW Begginer

Hi, my company got few CP firewalls, I have to test them and I never had a chance to work on them.

Can anyone explane me differences between CP smart dashboard and CP smart console?

Is that software free?

I want to configure my device from Url https://my_device:4433, but every guide I saw explane configuration from CP dashboard or console?

Re: CP FW Begginer

Prior to R80, SmartDashboard was used to make security policy changes.
In R80, most of the functionality was moved to a new application called SmartConsole.
There are a handful of features in R80.x that still require configuration in SmartDashboard, thus why you see references to both applications.

If you're new to Check Point, I highly recommend going through our Check Point for Beginners series.

Re: CP FW Begginer

Ok, so both, smartConsole and smartDashboard, are required for configuring the firewall. 

But what about configuration options on device itself? On url https://ip_addr:4433?

What's on the WebUI of the device itself is the operating system configuration.
Security policy configuration must be done with SmartConsole.
