Step by Step Checkpoint CCSA Lab Setup (UniNets Lab).

This article will show you how to configure Checkpoint CCSA lab on UniNets Platform
Smart Architecture
Smart Architecture is composed of three tiers or three components
Smart Console: Client on an admin machine (The Smart Console apps are the GUI clients that allow you to manage Security Management Server and Security Gateways).
Smart Center Server Security Management Server that stores policy and allows you to create policy objects, policy objects, etc.
Smart Security Gateway: Firewall (Firewalls control traffic between internal and external networks. They are the heart of a strong network security policy).
Steps to get into our lab
Racks.uninets.com
To register, click on the sign up button
You will need to provide basic information such as your name, mobile number, email id, and password in order to sign up.
Enter valid code for your country and 10 digits mobile numbers.
For example, if your mobile no. If your mobile number is +65XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX, then +65 is the country code. To make it a 10-digit number, you can add 2 zeros to the number’s beginning. 00XXXXXXXX
After you have completed the sign up process, you can log in with your registered phone number or password.
After you log in, you’ll see a dialog box that contains labs for different courses.
Your timer starts as soon as your lab is operational, like the Checkpoint CCSA lab.

The following is what you will see in the Checkpoint CCSA lab.
DC-5M is used for Management servers
DC-5G is used to secure gateways
Window Server is used to create Active Directory servers or when users want to access firewalls.
The DMG Server is the Internal client.
The External Client
BR-Client can be used as a branch office
BR-5G is used to protect branch offices. It will access resources via firewall.

To begin working on the devices, you must first power on the device that you wish to use. Once you are done, turn off the power source. You can also delete the previous configuration by right clicking on each device. This will allow the devices to return to their default settings.
Your workbook is also necessary for the operation of your task. To do this, you will need to log in to uninets.online.com.
You will need to go to my courses to view your workbooks. You can then operate your lab according to the task given in your Checkpoint CCSA Workbook.
For example, you are assigned the task of configuring security management server (SMS) hostname SM and IP-address to management Interface 192.168.1.51/24. After that, you took GUI from management interface with default credential to complete configuration.
To return to our lab, we need to log in to our management server. Double-click on the management server to open the configuration window. Login first to start operating the management server. You will need to enter your username, password, and email address.
You can use the command i.e. to change your device’s host name. Set Hostname, then the name that you wish to assign. Set Hostname SM for example. To save the configuration, run the command ‘Save Config’
We now need to assign IP address to this device so that it can be managed via a web console. To assign IP address to this device, run the command Set interface eth0
Where, eth0 can be used to define an internal zone or your management interface by default.
The command is Set interface.eth0 ipv4 address 192.168.1.51
Set interface eth0 ipv4-address 192.168.1.51 mask length 24
If you wish to verify that the IP address has been defined, run the command show interface eth0 then enter. You will now be able see the IP address that has been set.
You can also save the configuration by running the command save config. Next, you can access the management IP via a web console. This will do it.

Basic understanding of the Checkpoint SMART Architecture
Configure Security Gateway with hostname firewall-Gateway, and give IP-address for management interface 172.11.2.1/24. Then, take GUI from management interface using default credential and do the rest of configuration
Configure IP- addresses for internal and external networks on firewall – firewall Gateway for internal-NW interfaces eth1 and eth2 172.11.3.1 through on CMD
Identify the operating systems versions of SM and SG, and whether it’s a SM/SG.

Explanation
The core component of checkpoint’s unified cybersecurity architecture is the checkpoint Security Management Architecture. Administrators can centrally configure, manage and monitor all security devices, including endpoints, from one console (the Smart Dashboard).
These are the components of the Checkpoint core system
Smart Console
Security Management Server
Security Gateway

Smart Console
Smart Console is made up of several clients that are used to manage the checkpoint security environment. Smart Dashboard is one of the Smart Console clients. It provides a single GUI interface that allows you to define and manage multiple elements, such as firewall security and VPNs. Monitoring and configuration
Security Management Server
Security Management Server stores security policies and distributes them to multiple security gateways. These security policies can be defined using Smart Dashboard and saved to Security Management Server. The Checkpoint database is maintained by Security Management Server. Security Gateways are notified when policies are modified or created. Security policies are constantly updated on all Security Gateways, which improves security.
Security Gateway
Security Gateway is the firewall that installs firewall software and does Stateful Inspection. Security policies can be created using Smart Dashboard and saved to Security Management Server. Inspection scripts are then generated from policies. Inspection code is then compiled from inspection code and distributed to Security Gateways, where it is installed.
Configuration
Open putty, firewall-server console access

Modifications to the CCNP Program

Bryan Baize, CCIE #16139 Cisco recently announced a major overhaul of its CCNP program. Cisco conducted a Job Task Analysis (JTA), to find out what the market really expects of a CCNP-certified professional. The JTA brought together subject matter experts from around the globe. It revealed that the CCNP needs to return to basics in routing and switching, as well as troubleshooting. The market wants the CCNP professional, in general, to be more self-sufficient and free-thinking. According to IT professionals surveyed, the CCNP job would include three items.
Planning
network maintenance
Troubleshooting
Cisco designed the new program around the following goals:
To better align the CCNP certification with job roles
To better prepare the CCNP to receive the CCIE Routing and Switching certification
To focus on core technologies and delve deeper into complex routing, switching, and other solutions
To reduce the importance of advanced features and deep knowledge
Security should be given more attention
These classes are ROUTE, SWITCH, and TSHOOT. Soon, three corresponding tests are planned. ROUTE and SWITCH have been replaced by BSCI, BCMSN, respectively. TSHOOT is a completely new class. The ONT and ISCW classes have been eliminated. Specialized technologies like voice, voice, and wireless have been eliminated. Although no order of classes is enforced it is strongly recommended ROUTE and SWITCH are taken before TSHOOT.
You don’t have to worry if you’ve already started your journey towards CCNP certification. You can combine the old test with the new test in many cases to earn CCNP certification. The old exams will still be available until July 31, 2010, You will also need to pass BSCI and BCMSN for any other certifications such as CCIP or CCDP. ROUTE and SWITCH will count towards these certifications.
Boson’s Instructor team had the honor of taking part in the Alpha classes for ROUTE SWITCH, TSHOOT and SWITCH. It was an incredible experience to go through the process to analyze every slide and every lab instruction in order to make these classes what it is today. To aid the learning process, many new features were added, including lab debriefs and tear out topology maps. We are confident that you will agree that these classes are of a higher quality and technical accuracy. We look forward to integrating them into our Bootcamp program as well as delivering them individually as one-week classes.
You may still have questions after you’ve read the Cisco new information. We are here to help.

Changes to the CCNA Voice Certification Exam

James Hanback. You’ve spent many nights reading through CCNA Voice IT certification training manuals, answering CCNA Voice practice question, and searching –perhaps in vain –for a CCNA Voice simulation environment that allows you to use the Cisco Unified Communications 500 (UC500), to practice all that you learned from CCNA practice exams hearsay and study guide screen shots. You think you are ready to get your latest Cisco certification. But, when you sit for the CCNA Voice exam, you discover that what you had studied is outdated news, cold water, stale bread, and other metaphors. Rumours of the death or extinction of the UC500 topic on the CCNA Voice exam are not exaggerated.
The CCNA Voice Voice exam (640-460) tested your knowledge of the concepts and configurations of small Voice over IP networks. This is the type you are most likely to deploy in a small or medium-sized company. The exam focused on the configuration, deployment, and maintenance of Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express, CME (call management), Cisco Unity Express (CUE), for voice messaging, and UC500, which is an all-in-one solution with the handy graphical user interface (GUI), Cisco Configuration Assistant (CCA).
The CCNA Voice 640-461 exam switches the focus to a larger VoIP network. You will still need to be able to administer CME but you also need the skills to deploy, configure and maintain large-scale VoIP networks.
Cisco Unified Communications Manager (UCM).
UCM is the big brother to the CME call processing platform. The Voice exam covered administering CME using the command-line interface. For 640-461, make sure you know how to set up user accounts, enable certain features, and generate reports using the GUI. There is no way to issue a show-running-config.
Cisco Unity Connection
Unity Connection is the voice messaging component for the enterprise-level Cisco VoIP network. You should be able to add users and enable Unity Connection features. You should also be familiar with the protocols and methods Unity Connection uses for communication with other products within the VoIP environment.
Cisco Unified Presence (CUP), Know More
CUP is the diplomat for the enterprise VoIP network. It is the component that makes all other VoIP components talk to each other. It is important to understand what CUP does and how they do it. CUP also has a client side, known as Cisco Unified Personal Communicator. Personal Communicator software allows an end user to make and receive calls from their workstation. It is important to familiarize yourself with how Personal Communicator works with UCM and CUP.
Learn the basics of VoIP
While you won’t need to learn all the background information about VoIP for the exam, it is important to understand the basics of how a VoIP network works. You should be able to understand the basics of VoIP network protocols, call quality, as well as call signaling.
Learn How to Troubleshoot
The 640-461 exam is focused on administrative and support roles. You should be able to troubleshoot a VoIP network. You should also know the common problems that can arise from misconfigurations of Cisco Unified Communications components.
You haven’t wasted your time if the CCNA Voice 640–460 materials were used to prepare you for the 640-461 exam. If you don’t have any experience with these products, you might struggle with questions related to UCM, Unity Connection and CUP.

Catalyst 4500 Supervisor 7E and Supervisor 7L E

The Catalyst 4500 Supervisor-7-E uplinks ports are available with either 1GE with SFP GBICs, or 10GE with SP+. In a redundant configuration, only two ports are active for each Supervisor. The physical ports should remain active even if a Supervisor is unable to supervise.

Catalyst 4500 Supervisor7-E and Supervisor7L–E ISSU Requirements

ISSU requires either the 4510R+E (or 4507R+E) chassis. Only RPR ISSU can be supported on the 4510R+E or 4507R+E (not ISSU). NOTICE: Supervisor7LE is not supported in the 4510R+E chassis
ISSU is not supported by the LAN Base Feature Set.
IOS XE Version 3.1.0 SG is the minimum version of IOS that supports ISSU. NOTE: IOS-XE. Version 3.2.0 XO on Supervisor7L–E.
The minimum ROMMON environment to support SSO and RPR on Supervisor Engine &-E’s Supervisor Engine & -E is 15.0 (1r)SG1.
It was found that the Configuration Register must be set to 0x2102 instead of the factory default 0x2101 to enable ISSU with a second image copied from bootflash. It is not logical to use a Configuration Register setting 0x2101 as a result of the ISSU purpose. Each supervisor must be reloaded in order to make a change.

Before a new Sup7E is put into service, it is recommended that the Configuration Register be changed to 0x2102 after installation and commissioning. This will make future software upgrades easier and allow the ISSU process to work.
