Community Highlights

Here are the threads to watch from the last week:

New Software Releases

Rate & Review SandBlast Mobile Protect

Aside from sharing your feedback on CheckMates, of course, please let us know how you like SandBlast Mobile Protect on the various app stores.

Ansible Demo with R80.20 Gateways and Management

An updated version of an older demo, but now with current versions.

Max Concurrent Sessions Per Connection Exceeded Quota

Certain protocol inspections have a quota associated with them.

TechBytes: Remote Access

A how-to on setting up remote access.

Keeping Policy Templates with no Policy Install Targets

You might not want to keep a layer with a policy installation target of All. If you specify "Specific" then you have to put something there. Here's how to make it empty.

Automation for Newbies: Ansible and Terraform

A new demo involving Ansible and Terraform.

Can the 3200 Appliance Be Managed Locally?

Can it? Yes. Should it? Different question.

Activate PFS in a Community via API

No official API for it, but it can be done.

Show Changes in a Single Session

It can be done via API, yes. In R80.30, a SmartConsole Extension will be available that will generate a Policy Change Report.

API - Adding Network Objects with the same IP as Others Already Created

Not by default, but it can be done.

Move IPS Profile Rules to Threat Prevention Layer

One of those tasks you'll have to perform after you upgrade your gateways to R80.x.

Access Serial Console of Another Device thru Check Point Appliance USB port

This is a neat trick!
