R80.x Ports Used for Communication by Various Check Point Modules

Introduction

This drawing should give you an overview of the used R80 and R77 ports respectively communication flows. It should give you an overview of how different Check Point modules communicate with each other. Furthermore, services that are used for firewall operation are also considered. These firewall services are also partially mapped as implied rules in the set on the firewall.

Suggest to add OSPF, RIP, BGP.

Keep up the good work in the Forum.

Hello Heiko,

This is really great stuff! Thanks for maintaining and updating to latest releases.

Maybe you can correct the minor cut in the graphics in lower left corner - in the explanation box.

Seems to be an error in both the online and pdf version.

Thanks

/Jan

Hello, Jan,

thanks for the info. I have a small problem with my "Microsoft PDF Printer" Smiley Happy, so it is always displayed incorrectly.

I'll try to improve it in the next version.

Thanks

Heiko

What do you think I should delete old R70/R71R75/R76 ports?

Some of our customers still use old firewalls, so it can still be helpful.

I'm not so sure myself!

Regards,

Heiko

Now the version of the drawing is R80.10.

I add routing ports in the next version.

Regards,

Heiko

As long as you clearly differentiate what is current standard and what is legacy - I find it valuable to have a single page doc.

The second option is to separate into two pages in same document - Latest conventions and legacy on separate pages.

Especially for customers who have a clean and updated environment, it will give a simpler and easier overview.

Thanks Heiko, great initiative. Will leave up to you whether it makes sense to also add the different supported versions of e.g. snmp (1/2/3) or ntp (1/2/3/4).

Security gateway update anti-virus/anti-bot signature seems also need to connect to Check Point update server directly right?

I think management server and SmartDashBoard only.

Heiko

I added routing communication in verion 1.3b!

Oh, I just remember something:
- Contract Update

Heiko

I like that document. It is very helpful for rule creation and troubleshooting.

Participant

The L2TP port UDP 1701 is missing in your drawing.

Participant

I agree with you. The new color scheme is better.

100 points, nice!

MDS (Multi-Domain Server / Provider-1) are using the same ports as SMS ? For sync between Active and Standby + communication with CMAs.

PS: pdf version for download is still 1.3b, not actual 1.4a

Kind regards,

Nice work! Just need to be able to download the latest version 1.4a in PDF.

CRL fetch from LDAP can be done also using http (not only ldap port)

Kind regards,
Jozko Mrkvicka

Okay, I am check this and add the port in the next version.
