Creating Checkpoint VSX and Virtual System - Part 2 - VSX Deployment Example

This lab is an example for a typical VSX Deployment scenario - one shared external Interface to Internet and separate Internal interfaces for each VSX virtual firewall.

This lab also is second part of earlier post :
Creating Checkpoint VSX and Virtual System - Part 1 

In that previous post, it already shows how to create a new VSX gateway through SmartConsole. This lab will show the steps how to create two VSX virtual firewalls and how to set up a virtual router. Two internal interfaces will be used to test the traffics from two different networks. 

Topologies:


Basically, in this lab, there is one physical VSX gateway with two logical VSX virtual firewalls. Each virtual VSX virtual firewall has two interfaces , External and Internal.

Steps:


1. Follow the previous post "Creating Checkpoint VSX and Virtual System - Part 1" to add a new VSX gateway into Smart Dashboard.


The new VSX Gateway has four physical interfaces as shown in the following:
  • Eth0 Mgmt:192.168.2.41
  • Eth1 EXT: for 172.17.3.x External Network
  • Eth2 LAN1: for 192.168.99.x - VSX1 Internal Network
  • Eth3 LAN2: for 10.94.200.x - VSX2 Internal Network

After new VSX Gateway (CP-VSX) added into Smart Dashboard, the webUI in browser will show:
Web UI is not supported in VSX mode. Please use Clish for OS configuration.

3.  Check Network Topologies on both vsx1 and vsx2
