C H E C K P O I N T S E C U R I T Y M A S T E R - L A B S E T U P G U I D E Configuring the Lab Environment The Check Point Security Master course 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. 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. Additional Files Check_Point_R80.10_T421_Fresh_Install_and_Upgrade_from_R7X.tgz–Install on all Virtual Machines where a Check Point Security Management Server or Security Gateway system is required. The build number may change but you will need to build the Check Point VMs with the latest “fresh install” build of R80.10. 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.

C H E C K P O I N T S E C U R I T Y M A S T E R - L A B S E T U P G U I D E Configuring the Virtual Machines Configure each of the virtual machines listed below on all student machines. 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 GUI Client virtual machine: Name:A-GUI OS:Windows Client Hard Drive:40GB RAM: 2GB Check Point Modules Installed: SmartConsole R80.10 Use the following information to configure the interface for the virtual machine: IP Address:10.1.1.201 Subnet Mask:255.255.255.0 Default Gateway:10.1.1.1 Interface:eth0 LAN:Management (LAN 1)
