Analyze firewall config on checkpoint appliance

Hi all,


I want to analyze the configuration on older firewall appliances (1450) with R77.20.80.

In expert mode I found a lua script that seemed to export the whole configuration as CSV, that I can call as

# lua /pfrm2.0/bin/cli/showConfig.lua

The output looks good so far except for the port forwarding on a server definition:

add server name "JTBCK01" ipv4-address "a.b.c.d" dhcp-exclude-ip-addr "on" dhcp-reserve-ip-addr-to-mac "off" dns-resolving "false"
set server server-ports "JTBCK01" web-server "off" mail-server "off" dns-server "off" ftp-server "off" citrix-server "off" pptp-server "off" custom-server "on"
set server server-access "JTBCK01" access-zones "all-zones" allow-ping-to-server "on" log-blocked-connections "on" log-accepted-connections "on"
set server server-nat-settings "JTBCK01" nat-settings "port-forwarding" port-address-translation "off" force-source-hide-nat  "on"

This server uses a non-standard port and I can see the port definition in the web interface but nowhere in the output of the above mentioned script.

Is there anything I am missing or are there better ways to analyze configurations from older firewalls.

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards,

This is not an older firewall, but a SMB device from April 2016 - so the question should be under !


About the show config.lua: This can simply be called in CLISH as described in my Configuration transfer between different SMB models.

Sorry for my ignorance. I wasn't aware that the post should be under " SMB Appliances and SMP" and neither did I know the CLISH command.

The CLISH command gives me the same output but unfortunately the port for the custom-server is still missing.

I guess I have to be aware of this and fill in the missing pieces from the web interface.

Thanks for your reply.

You do not need the web interface as all is also available on the CLI: Check Point R77.20.80 600/700/1100/1200R/1400 Appliance CLI Reference Guide

Just try a

# show servers 


# show server <name>
