I inherited a Checkpoint firewall that had an incorrect configuration. If I go into Checkpoint configuration (where it pulls the ip from the hosts file) and view that ip address section, nothing appears. I changed the external interface to the correct address, edited the hosts file, and tried to go into policy manager, but the firewall tells me the license is not registered to that address, and will not let me in! I see that the license is registered to the public address and cannot be changed without being removed, re-registered, etc. Is this the way it is suppossed to be? Also, the authorized GUI client, is that suppossed to be an internal client, or the internal address of the firewall? Help!
