Monitoring VPN Tunnels on Checkpoint Firewall




I would like to monitor the status of VPN tunnels from our R71 Checkpoint firewall

I have the Checkpoint MIB and when I start to setup an SNMP library sensor I can see 12 tunnel state entries which relate to our 12 tunnels. They are identified with numbers

eg tunnel: 519488347 tunnel: -87005757 etc

What I can't find out is how to relate these reference numbers to the VPNs defined on the firewall. I've asked our firewall support company, but they don't know. I've tried converting these numbers as decimal notation to IP addresses and the peer IP addresses on the firewall to decimal notation by various methods, but drawn a blank.

Can you assist please ?

would it be possible to please send us the MIB in question? Like this, we can't help much more either, I'm afraid, but maybe a look into the MIB, could tell us something to tell you.

best regards.
