Checkpoint firewall monitoring?



Are there any sensors than can monitor traffic on a checkpoint 6.5 firewall? If not are there any plans in the future for such sensors?

If you're referring to monitoring a ZoneAlarm software firewall, please consider using WMI Process or WMI Service sensors to monitor if the software's components are running on your client computers.

In order to monitor a Checkpoint NGX R65 firewall, please try it via SNMP.

For information on how to enable SNMP, please see the following article from clintspot.blogspot.com: Monitoring Checkpoint Firewalls with SNMP

In PRTG, you can then e.g. set up SNMP Custom sensors to monitor the OIDs mentioned in the article.
