Check Point 1000n Setup

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
Hello Experts I'm in need for some advice for setting up a new firewall (Check Point 1000n) to replace a smoothwall firewall. As of last night when I had it hooked up I was able to get internet and email but couldn't get our smartphones to sync with the server and connect to the RDP from outside of our lan. I do have port 4125 open but do I need to open port 3389 as well?
one other qusetion about a setting on the smoothwall. Under the Source IP theres "any",Destination port "any" and Destination IP "my server's ip". Now I'm new to firewalls but with is setting enabled is my firewall "open" on all ports? If so what would the previous IT guy set it up that way?

Thanks again for your help on this
