Manage firewalls via IPSec VPN tunnel

Jump to solution



I have a situation that there will be firewalls behind an IPSec VPN tunnel from the management server.


I know that it is not a recommended method, however, for a short period time(maybe a month), we have to set it up through VPN tunnel. Is it possible? If so, please let me know how to achieve it. At least be able to establish SIC and make policy installations.


FW Management server <--> VPN FW <--> IPSec VPN <--> VPN FW <--> Firewalls to manage


As you can see, the management server needs to manage the firewalls behind the VPN firewall. 


I am running under Gaia R80.10, and the firewalls are all Checkpoint firewalls. 


I need your expertise, please help.
