I'll not sugarcoat it, you did start this But it annoyed me that it wasn't working so my fault too.Thanks @fredbert this is really great news and glad it's sorted for you, sorry I guess I stared it .
It's been an age since I had a 'Check Point' firewall at home, back then it was Nokia IP appliances (before CKP bought out that business) with FW-1/VPN-1 onboard. So what've you got? A small 4000 series? or 2000 series?
