S E C U R I T Y E N G I N E E R I N G - L A B S E T U P P R O C E D U R E S Configuring the Lab Environment The Check Point Security Engineering class topology was designed as a “sandbox” environment. All student machines have the same set of IP addresses. The virtual machines do connect to the Internet, NATed through the host machine. Internet connectivity is required for each host machine used by students attending the course. Follow the steps below to configure the virtual machines needed for the students to perform all Security Administration labs. ATCs may use whatever virtualization software they choose, but Check Point assumes most Virtual Machines will be created in either a VMware Workstation or an ESX environment. Our tests were all performed on VMware Workstation 12. A Special Note about LicensingThe built-in 15 day evaluation licenses are no longer used in this classroom configuration.All Check Point servers at the Alpha site are required to have a license before the students begin this class. The Bravo license will be added during a specific lab by the students and should not be preloaded. To get 6-month BCK licenses provided to you for use in this and other Check Point classes, contact your ATC coordinator. Configuring Virtual Machine Settings All virtual machines should be configured with the following options: Snapshots –Just Power off VMware Tools –Installed Remove the Floppy from the Hardware Settings Time Synchronization –Synchronization between Guest and Host should be active. LDAP Information Configure the virtual machines on the Alpha Internal network to be in the alpha.cp domain. All users should log into the domain and not the local virtual machine.

The specifications shown here in terms of Hard Drive and RAM are considered minimum requirements. For better performance, these numbers should be increased. All user, OS, and application passwords should be: Chkp!234A-GUI Use the information below to configure the Alpha GUI Client virtual machine: Name:A-GUI OS:Windows Client Hard Drive:40GB RAM: 2GB The following Check Point modules will be installed during the labs: SmartConsole R77.30 Use the following information to configure the interface for this virtual machine: IP Address:10.1.1.201 Subnet Mask:255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 10.1.1.1 Interface:eth0 Network:Management (LAN 1)
