Hi,

Is it possible to Configure Check point FW to synchronize with an external NTP Server then have the checkpoint firewall update our internal NTP Server? (how to do it also)
Also is it possible to have our external interface of the Checkpoint firewall act as external NTP then have the internal interface act as the internal ntp server?

Hi,

1st question: allow your internal NTP server to update through the firewall from an external NTPserver e.g. 0.pool.ntp.org

2nd question: allow incoming ntp requests through the firewall on UDP 123 and forward them to your internal NTP server

CHeckpoint is a firewall and does not provide these services although the underlying OS (e.g. IPSO, RedHat) might but to implement as in your question would be making things far more complicated than they need to be.

Hope this helps,

G

sadly no, Check Point don't offer that type of facility bud.

As grimkin said, CP is firewall software, NTP is all related to the OS it sits on.
