Not sure what you mean here bud.

I know of a simplified and traditional mode as differernt types of VPN, but not sure what you mean by legacy mode.

To tell which type of VPN mode you are in look at smartdashboard.  If you have a policy action of "encrypt" and no option of defining a VPN community, then you are in traditional mode VPN.

If this does not answer your question, can you elaborate a little further?

When configuring VLAN on a Nokia based Check Point Firewall, the configuration of the monitored interfaces can either be in Legacy mode or Simplified mode:

1/ A Firewall is in Simplified Mode, when the command following is used to add the monitoring interfaces:

add mcvr vrid [vrid number] backup-address [backup address ip]

Example:
add mcvr vrid 160 backup-address 10.156.147.56

2/ A Firewall is in Legacy Mode, when the command below is used to add the monitoring interfaces:

set vrrp interface [name of interface to be monitored] monitored-circuit vrid [vrid number] monitored-interface [monitoring interface name] on
set vrrp interface [name of interface to be monitored] monitored-circuit vrid [vrid number] monitored-interface [monitoring interface name] priority-delta 2

example:
set vrrp interface eth-s39p40c39 monitored-circuit vrid 90 monitored-interface eth-s32p56c20 on
set vrrp interface eth-s39p40c39 monitored-circuit vrid 90 monitored-interface eth-s32p56c20 priority-delta 2

My question is how would you know that the firewall is in simplified or legacy mode and use the appropriate command?

First of all. Look at using voyager to configure vrrp. Ot will be clearer for you to see the differences there bud.

I'd you are using later versions of ipso ie from 4.2 or later then always use simplified mode. Legacy mode is just that, legacy and is only needed on much older systems.

So from what you are saying by using voyager I should be able to spot the difference, is that correct?  
I am so used to the command line and always prefer to use it rather than voyager.  if the difference is clear in voyager, I am sure that there is a way to find out in the CLI.
