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.
# ./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.
