Hi John, 

Can you confirm that you have reviewed:

How to migrate a competitor's database to Check Point with SmartMove  

Specifically the Fortinet section. What's the version of the Fortinet gateway you are migrating from?

Regards

Hello Guys,



I am new here, this is my first time post here.



I have a Project to migrate the from Checkpoint to Fortinet.

My questions are, what do i have to consider in advance regarding the chcekpoint point view of you please?

Does anyone has the steps i need to take before the migration please? 

My concern is the NAT rules, not sure the impact will be.

Any advice and suggestions appreciated.
