I am trying to create a lab enviroment for CheckPoint NGX R65

I have a PC, with checkpoint installed (VPN-1 UTM)
Then i install on a second pc the SmartCenter & SmartDashBoard

To SmartCenter:
i install the academic licence from the checkpoint site,then i add as admin my machine, apply setting and reboot
Same behavior appears if i dont install any licence.

After reboot i try to access firewall through SmartDashBoard.

However i cant because i get the error message:
Connection cant be initiated
Please make sure that the server "10.19.x.x" is up and running and that you are defined as a GUI client

SmartDashBoard has connectivity with checpoint fiewall (ping are ok)
Are on the same lan = no firewall

Any ideas?

I assume you have a stealth rule implemented?

Do you have a rule before your stealth rule that allows your computer to access the FW?

I dont have any policy installed as i cant access the firewall after installation.

By default the firewall has any policy applied?

The logs created after the last reboot are attached (logs.txt)
I dont see any refuse for my attempt.


Moreover, i cant ssh to the security gateway from the lab pc that has installed SmartDashBoard. But i can ssh from my desktop!

If I've read your description right then the SmartCenter is installed on your own PC not on the firewall module so the machine you need to connect to is your local box - put in either 127.0.0.1 as the SmartCenter IP or else the local IP address of your box in the intial SmartDashboard window.

This should bring you up the GUI where you can configure your rules and then push the policy to your firewall module.
