Checkpoint to Juniper migration
Posted on 2009-12-18
I have been thrown into a project to replace some old Nokia Checkpoint Firewalls. They have a large number of rules (policies) and a very large number of address book entries. They also have numerous VPNs configured in the VPN manager on the one and traditional mode in the other. They are both in a cluster.
What I am looking to do is find a way to export the config (rules(policies), address book, VPNs configured) into a text format. Once I have it in a text format I can manipulate it into a script that I can import into the new junipers. I have just not been able to figure out how to export the data i need. I do not have a strong Checkpoint background. I also do not have physical access to these systems cause the are at remotes sites in a different country. I do have access to them via the SmartDashboard (read-only) and admin access via ssh.
Any suggestions on how to go about getting this information?
