IP Forwarding R80.10

Hi Guys,

I just have my vulnerability report for my firewall and it turns out that I need to disable the IP forwarding mechanism in my CP.

Based on my understanding in general computer networks, IP forwarding is the process handling the packet transfers. If we disable it in the Check Point, how will the firewall transfer packets now? Is my understanding correct or is there something more deeper than that as far as Check Point firewall is concerned?

I was told to disable using this command,

# echo 0 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

Thanks for your replies in advance.
