Checkpoint Floodgate1 (QoS) on Management Server

I wanted to control my traffic on the checkpoint firewall, so I installed FloodGate1 on the firewall itself (by going to voyager and turning FloodGate1 Module on) I also turned on SmartView Monitor Module from the voyager.

So, i was hoping to select the QoS in Gateway Cluster properties from the Management Server. But its greyed out. I was able to select SmartView Monitor checkbox and install the policy to get the bandwidth reporting working, but not the QoS.

I wanted to see whether I need to install something on the management server itself to get the QoS tab in the management server... check the screenshot below

If yes, please tell me how i can install it on the management server and why didn't I have to install anything for SmartView monitor to work?

Most likely you are not licensed to use Floodgate-1....
The voyager will let you enable all the packages you want, but Checkpoint wants the lic file allowing each one.

I have the license.... I was able to select FloodGate-1 and SmartView monitor from Voyager.
Smartview monitor works, but not floodgate-1
For smartview monitor, i had to go to Gateway window in management server -->select smartview monitor checkbox-->apply policy-->I was then able to go to Window-->Smartview monitor.

For FloodGate-1, i tried doing the same thing. But in the gateway window in management server, the QOS checkbox was greyed out.

any suggestions now?

Do yourself a favor and Install the FloodGate-1 add-On onto the SmartCenter Server
1. Go to 'Expert mode' after a standard log on.

 2. Obtain the FloodGate-1 rpm package: CPfg1-R55-00.i386.rpm.

          * Obtain it from the VPN-1/FireWall-1 NG with Application Intelligence R55 CD ROM


          * Obtain it from the hard disk, on an VPN-1/FireWall-1 NG with Application Intelligence R55 SecurePlatform install. It is under:


   3. Change into the directory where the rpm file is located.

   4. Run the cpstop command.

   5. Run the rpm -i packagename command to install.

      rpm -i CPfg1-R55-00.i386.rpm

      This will install the FloodGate-1 package for NG with Application Intelligence R55 on the SecurePlatform machine.

   6. Run the cpstar command.

   7. Log into the Smart Update GUI and select 'Packages > Get Data', to update the package repository.

In a distributed environment, FloodGate-1 requires installation on both the enforcement module and the management server. Also an appropriate FloodGate-1 license should also be installed on both the enforcement module and management server.

I'll send you the bill later
