Product description

Amazon Review

Firewall-1 is a complex product which makes the approach taken by Essential Check Point Firewall-1 particularly welcome. Basically, the author presents a series of heavily annotated pictorial mini-tutorials which take you from installation, through configuration, management and on to troubleshooting.

Each tutorial covers a specific feature, shows you how to access it within Firewall-1, what the options mean, which you can ignore under certain conditions and sensible default settings. In practice, the author goes much further, detailing the effects various settings have with and without other software, services and even product licences.

The author's advice on how to develop rule sets is welcome, nearly as much so as the detailed discussions on implementing them, which requires a reasonable understanding of how the rules will affect the user experience along with the network's security. Perhaps the most apposite section, though, covers the many supported authentication methods in Firewall-1. This is as thorough as the section on arranging secure external access to the firewall management software for sysadmins.

All in all, Essential Check Point Firewall-1 is a remarkably accessible book for anyone who has to administer Check Point's bestselling firewall solution. This is highly recommended. --Steve Patient

From the Author

This book covers the essentials of Check Point FireWall-1, thus the title. Each chapter discusses a major feature of the product or a specific topic that will help you to plan for your FireWall-1 installation. You get step-by-step configuration instructions for many features in FireWall-1 complete with screen shots and several sample configurations that you can try. The book also includes lots of information from my FireWall-1 FAQs.

What makes me uniquely qualified to write this book? I've been helping people to use this product since 1996 from version 2.0 onward. I've also done numerous customer installations and taught the Check Point certification classes. I continually contribute to the FireWall-1 community through my website and moderated mailing list, FireWall-1 Wizards.

My hope is that all FireWall-1 administrators find this book a useful tool and will learn something about FireWall-1 they didn't know before.

-- Dameon D. Welch-Abernathy, a.k.a. "PhoneBoy"
