CheckPoint Firewall-1 Commands

Stops the FireWall-1 daemon, management server (fwm), SNMP (snmpd)
and authentication daemon (authd).
(To stop Firewall-1 NG and load the default filter: fwstop –default, fwstop –proc)
Loads the FireWall-1 and starts the processes killed by fwstop.
Stops all Check Point applications running, except cprid.
Starts all Check Point applications.
In NT, opens Check Point Configuration Tool GUI. (licenses, admins …)
>cpstat options
Provides status of the target hosts.
Usage: cpstat [-h host][-p port][-f flavour][-o polling [-c count] [-e period]]
[-d] application_flag
-h A resolvable hostname, a dot-notation address, or a DAIP object name.
Default is localhost.
-p Port number of the AMON server.
Default is the standard AMON port (18192).
-f The flavour of the output (as appears in the configuration file).
Default is to use the first flavour found in the configuration file.
-o Polling interval (seconds) specifies the pace of the results.
Default is 0, meaning the results are shown only once.
-c Specifying how many times the results are shown.
Default is 0, meaning the results are repeatedly shown.
-e Period interval (seconds) specifies the interval over which "statistical" oids are computed.
Ignored for regular oids.
-d Debug mode

FireWall-1 Commands
>fw ver [-h] ..
Display version
This is Check Point VPN-1(TM) & FireWall-1(R) NG Feature Pack 3 Build 53920
>fw kill [-sig_no] procname
Send signal to a daemon
>fw putkey –n ip_address_host ip_address_of_closest_interface
Client server keys; helpful if you are integrating an NG Management Server
with 4.x enforcement modules. Will install an authenticating password; used
to authenticate SIC between the Management Server and the module.
>fw sam (Suspicious Activities Monitoring)
sam [-v] [-s sam-server] [-S server-sic-name] [-t timeout] [-l log] [-f fw-host]
[-C] -((n|i|I|j|J)
sam [-v] [-s sam-server] [-S server-sic-name] [-f fw-host] -M -ijn
sam [-v] [-s sam-server] [-S server-sic-name] [-f fw-host] -D
Criteria may be one of:
>fw fetch ip_address_management_station
Used to fetch Inspection code from a specified host and install it to the
kernel of the current host.
>fw tab [-h] ...
Displays the contents of FireWall-1’s various tables
>fw tab –t connections –s tells how many connections in state table
>fw monitor [-h] ...
Monitor VPN-1/FW-1 traffic
>fw ctl [args] install, uninstall, pstat, iflist, arp, debug, kdebug, chain, conn
Control kernel
>fw ctl pstat shows the internal statistics – memory/connections
>fw ctl arp shows firewall’s ARP cache – IP addresses via NAT
>fw lichosts
Display protected hosts
>fw log [-h] ...
Display logs
>fw logswitch [-h target] [+|-][oldlog]
Create a new log file; the old log is moved
>fw repairlog ...
Log index recreation
>fw mergefiles ...
log files merger
>fw lslogs ...
Remote machine log file list
>fw fetchlogs ...
Fetch logs from a remote host
FireWall Management Server Commands
>fwm ver [-h] ...
Display version
>fwm load [opts] [filter-file|rule-base] targets
Will convert the *.W file from the GUI to a *.pf file and compile into
Inspection code, installing a Security Policy on an enforcement module.
>fwm load Standard.W all.all@localgateway
>fwm unload [opts] targets
Uninstall Security Policy from the specified target(s).
>fwm dbload [targets]
Download the database
>fwm logexport [-h] ...
Export log to ascii file
>fwm logexport [-d delimiter] [-i filename] [-o filename] [-n] [-f] [-m
] [-a]
-d - Set the output delimiter. Default is ;
-i - Input file name. Default is the active log file, fw.log
-o - Output file name. Default is printing to the screen
-n - No IP resolving. Default is to resolve all IPs
-f - In case of active file (fw.log), wait for new records and export them
-m - Unification mode. Default is initial order.
Initial - initial order mode
Raw - No unification
Semi - Semi-unified mode
-a - Take account records only. Default is export all records
Once your logs files have been written to a backup file you can begin to export them into an
ASCII format so you may begin to analyze them. The command that accomplishes this is
the fw logexport command. The format of this command is as follows:
C:\WINNT\FW1\NG\log>fwm logexport -d , -i 2003-03-19_235900_1.log -o fwlog2003-03-
The –d switch specifies a delimiter character with the default being the semi-colon.
The –i switch specifies the input file and the –o switch specifies the output file. The –n
switch tells the program to not perform any name resolution on the IP addresses. This will
greatly speed up the export process. If you have the time and want to see the domain
names instead of IP addresses you may omit this switch. One word of caution though, the
size of the output files that get created grow an average of 2.5 times the input file.
>fwm gen [-RouterType [-import]] rule-base
Generate an inspection script or a router access-list
>fwm dbexport [-h] ...
Export the database
>fwm ikecrypt
Crypt a secret with a key (for the dbexport command)
>fwm dbimport [-h] ...
Import to database
SmartUpdate commands – Requires license
>cppkg add
>cppkg del [vendor] [product] [version] [os] [sp]
>cppkg print
>cppkg setroot
>cppkg getroot
