Managing Multiple Remote Gateways Behind Single Routable IP

Hi,

 

Scenario:  deploy a gateway cluster that will be remotely managed by a Multi-Domain server.

 

Challenges: 

- The site has a single internet link terminating on an internet load-balancer (provision for future secondary link) through which the management server must manage both gateways

 

Question: 

 

Is there a way that both gateways can be managed via the single public IP or is it only possible by obtaining a secondary public IP for the second cluster member? 

 

Thanks!

As I recall, each gateway needs to be uniquely reachable via a public IP address on several ports and there should be bi-directional connectivity between the management and gateways.
Otherwise, you can expect various elements of manageability to not work correctly.
See the excellent diagram showing the various ports used here: https://community.checkpoint.com/t5/Security-Gateways/R81-x-Ports-Used-for-Communication-by-Various-...
