Static mapping not working in CheckPoint
Posted on 2001-09-10
I have a Checkpoint Firewall1 server and an application that I need to access from the Internet. I am not using VPN (yet). I set up a one-to-one static mapping for the server, by basically creating 2 network objects:
AS400-Int = 10.0.0.2
AS400-Ext = <public ip>
Then I set up a rule specifying that anyone can access this machine at the public address using TCP 1375 at the public address. I then set up a route entry
ROUTE -P ADD <public ip> 10.0.0.2
I installed the policy, but it does not seem to be working. I was told that I had to associate the public ip with the MAC address of the server. How is this done? (I don't remember). Is this the problem?
