Checkpoint VSX platform - Connectivity issue

Jump to solution

Hi All,

I am new to Checkpoint VSX environment and trying to build a lab as attached in screenshot.

However trying to reach from source (172.16.10.10) to destination (192.168.10.10) but facing a connectivty issue.

Here are some details :

1) Using VSX Cluster (which is up and running  so far "Active/Standby status with cphaprob stat -No VLSL configured)

2) Ethernet 2 is used as "Inside network" and configured as VLAN Trunk 

3) Ethernet 3 is used as "Outside Network" and on VS1 used as Wraplink (shared interface) (ip: 192.168.0.0/16)

4) Any specific things from routing point of view or configuration point of view missing?

(attached lab design / VSX Cluster topology / VS1 topology)

Let me know someone can guide through.

Outcome :

1) From Inside PC (172.16.10.10) able to reach to Gateway which is on L3 Switch (vlan 10) 172.16.10.1

2) Not able to reach 172.16.10.50   which is configured on VS1 (eth2.10)

3) Not able to reach 192.168.0.2  /16 (which is on VSX Gateway as wrp link ip) 

Do i need to configure Proxy ARP or something as looks like a routing issue.

Somebody can share expert view on it.

First of all, why did you configure any static routes on VS0? It should only have route to MGMT network for control. VS0 should not receive and forward any traffic other than control connections from you MGMT server. 


Secondly, on VS1 itself you have configured VS0 as default GW. That is wrong. 

Also, why do you need a virtual switch, if you only have a single VS?

Many thanks for your review.

Yes i recognized and i have removed the virtual switch as i realize that Virtual switch is used only for communication between VSS and to send the traffic otuside.

Configured without Virtual Switch and it works as expected.

Thanks for pointing this out.
