Prerequisite for CCSE R80?

One of my colleagues passed the CCSA R80 exam two years ago. It'll expire tomorrow and he plans to do the CCSE R80 next week. He asked me if his then-expired CCSA R80 would be an issue.So I checked with the Check Point Certification FAQ - Updated December 2018However, I couldn't find any note about the expected status of required prerequisite (CCSA R80).

Check Point certification expiry question

I haven't been keeping up to date with Check Point certification matters ever since I got CCSA R65 many years ago.What I remember from back then is Check Point certification doesn't expire, but of course as the versions go up I'll remain certified for a older version. So now fast forward to 2019, I look this up again and found that this document says 2 years expiry. Was the expiry policy changed ?Did I miss a memo ? Regards.

Route Based VPN

Hi All, I facing issue while understanding route based vpn with cisco device. I tried to lab the scenario but its not working. the topology is as follows.R1--> Checkpoint firewall --> R2R1 loopback - loopback - objective is to ping to and traffic should go through tunnel.So i am creating route based vpn between checkpoint and r2. The steps that i performed on checkpoint firewall:1. created a tunnel interface remote peer: numberedlocal address address add route for ----> vpn tunnel int (next HOP)3. on checkpoint gateway in VPN domain call is it necessary to mention VPN domain in route based VPN or we can select or subnets behind gateway option.4. add inter-operable device - R2.5. in VPN community used mesh --> added gateway and router, configured phase 1 and phase 2 parameters and added shared secret on Cisco router i configured following.R1(config)#crypto isakmp policy 1R1(config-isakmp)#encryption 3desR1(config-isakmp)#authentication pre-shareR1(config-isakmp)#group 2R1(config-isakmp)#hash sha256R1(config-isakmp)#crypto isakmp key admin@123 address ipsec transform-set MY_TRANSFORM_SET esp-3des esp-sha256-hmac R1(cfg-crypto-trans)#mode tunnelR1(config)#crypto ipsec profile IPSEC_PROFILER1(ipsec-profile)#set transform-set MY_TRANSFORM_SETR1(config)#interface Tunnel 0R1(config-if)#ip address source destination protection ipsec profile IPSEC_PROFILER1(config)#ip route Tunnel0do we need to mention proxy-acl on cisco router as well. As i understand it is not necessary and routing decision will be taken in account instead of policy.Correct me if i am wrong somewhere. I am still a learner.THANKS
