Easy way - you can monitor the state of a tunnel on your security gateway  through snmp and then with your monitoring software send an email

Hard way - probably with an user defined event in smart event  it is possible to achieve this but I'm not sure about that


Marco ,That's exactly what we did .we leveraged sk63663 (to monitor VPN tunnels using SNMP ).

and we have already in place Network monitor software ; to watch and monitor any SNMP status ,and if there's something wrong with the VPN tunnel it would send an alert (email,text...etc) .

I'm not sure if Checkpoint Smart-event has the same capability to do the same function.

we use it for install policy if you get some error in phase1 probably you can define a user defined event but it's a lot more hard , despite that I did not have good result with snmp monitoring with few false positive so we decided to live without it users are usually faster anyway

One other option if both gateways are Check Point devices is to enable Permanent Tunnels (essentially Check Point's version of Dead Peer Detection) in the VPN community object, then set the "Tunnel Down" track to SNMP Trap or Mail Alert as shown here:
