I have a Checkpoint SG 4600 cluster with GAIA R77.30. Trying to establish a site to site vpn tunnel with AWS Virtual Private Gateway. I have a Domain based vpn setup on my end with an Inbound policy rule ( Meaning a server in AWS initiates a connection to a server in our network ) . On the day of deployment when they initiated the traffic the tunnel did not come up and I did not see any negotiations happening ( Did not see any IKE 500 packets coming to our network border router/Firewall, did not see any Key Install messages in Smart View Tracker ). AWS was unable to provide me any logs as it has been said that AWS Virtual Private Gateway is always configured to be as a "Responder" but not as a "Initiator" of the tunnel and hence they do not see any logs.
Is there any way I can configure checkpoint gateway to be the initiator of the tunnel ?
