gns3 is not a virtualization environment we officially support.
That said, there are threads on CheckMates where people were using it with later releases of Check Point.
And, honestly, you should be as well since R77.30 is End of Support.

You might want to share what precise settings were incorrect so others can learn from your experience.

Thanks for your response 

For the Management Server 

Network Adapter 0 should be bridged - make sure you choose the right adapter what you use for the ethernet or wifi

Network Adapter 1 should be Vmnet 1 - Coz you are connecting other interface to Gateway 

 

For the Gateway

Network Adapter 0 should be bridged - make sure you choose the right adapter what you use for the ethernet or wifi

Network Adapter 1 should be Vmnet 1 - Coz we need to connect gateway to Management server. so it is going to be the same Vmnet1 we used for management server.

and Network adapter 2 - Vmnet2 - if you are connecting it to any other network. in my case i am using gns3 router 

 

once you start from gns3, Vmware adapter settings changes automatically. coz gns3 itself assumes the required adapters to start the VM in which it takes other than required adapters. that causes connectivity issues between 2 Vms which further require manual correct adapter settings.
