Check Point FireWall-1 4.0 notes

Here are various notes I have on Check Point FireWall-1 4.0 that are not detailed enough to warrant their own Web page.

Adding a Management Console user

# ./fwm -a user


Deleting Management Console user

# ./fwm -r user


Displaying all Management Console users and associated permissions


# ./fwm -p


Manually loading a security policy


To manually install a CheckPoint FireWall security policy, use the "fw load" command, followed by the name of the policy, and the server destination.

Example:
# ./fw load /var/opt/CKPfw/conf/policy_file.W hostname


Empty security policy

If you see an empty security policy (i.e. you only see Standard.W) when using the Security Policy GUI, the $FWDIR/conf/rulebases.fws file may be corrupt. This could be caused by making a manual policy/object modification without coordinating the change in rulebases.fws. It is of course best to make modifications only through the Security Policy GUI.
