Checkpoint NG reverse proxy

Hi All,

Im currently looking at our design and implementation out in our DMZ.

I have read a fair bit of material that outlines the benefits of running a reverse proxy through to certain services that need a little bit more protection from the outside world.

Has anyone had any luck implementing reverse proxy to a DMZ environment on checkpoint NG.? Any white papers or doco would be fantastic too.

I realise implementing this on ISA 2004 is a doddle and am not interested in ISA comments, ISA is not an option, so checkpoint answers only please.

Thanks

Is this HTTP only? Other protocols?
Do you today have a CP FW-1 connecting the DMZ to the outside world?

Checkpoint cannot do true reverse proxy.

The answer lies in srikrishnak's comment in that you have to use user auth.

Not quite the answer I was looking for. But thanks all the same.
