Hey Jay,


The "3.10" information within the first column is referencing to the same image with the only difference that the "new" kernel version - 3.10 - is being instead used of the old on in the previous version.

More information regarding this change can be read here.


This release introduces the new 3.10 kernel for Security Gateways. It extends support for new platforms and offers a significant performance improvement in cloud environments.

Check Point R80.30 with Gaia 3.10 is now available. For more information, refer to sk152652. 

For Security Management Server, the new 3.10 kernel is already part of Check Point Main-Train release starting from R80.20, and is supported on all Security Management platforms (see R80.20 Release Notes).


Regarding the other two options:

R80.20 Fresh Install and Upgrade for Security Gateway and Standalone

=> this is the CPuse package which allows you to upgrade or freshly install an already configured and running security gateway - therefore the .tgz file ending

R80.20 Gaia Fresh Install for Security Gateway and Standalone

=> this simply is an .iso file which allows you to install and set up a new, fresh, security gateway which previously did not have any CP software installed






Hi Maik

Thanks. as for the R80.20 Gaia Fresh Install for Security Gateway and Standalone  .ISO image when we install it as a VM, it can either be installed as a Gateway or Secure Management Server or as  a Standalone with both g/w adn mgmt server on one VM.

is that correct understanding?

If this is the case why are there separate .ISO files for Gateway available for download and a separate .ISO file available for mgmt server.


Appreciate you can clarify.

Thank you Heiko. As for the item 6. above, can this same iso image be used to install on both Gateway and Smar-1 appliance and as a VM for gateway and as a VM for Management Server?

If yes, why do we also have separate .ISO files for Gateway and Management server.
Appreciate clarity pls.

1 Basically is a Non Mainstream Release that is based on the 3.10 Kernel rather then 2.6.

Is basically for a limited number of OpenServers, ie Dell, HP

Tells more about the R80.20 3.10 release.

At the moment there is limited support Gateway Level for 3.10 releases even at R80.30.


If want to ensure get the correct image then follow the upgrade wizard

It will provide the link to the image you need.
