2 Thoughts to “Check Point Firewall – Connection Table Analysis”

  1. Ronnie Guthrie

    Quick question – at what position does ‘Rule: 00’ exist in the rulebase? Does this mean ‘Rule: 00’ is actually rule #1 etc.?

    1. Hello Ronnie,

      No, it does not mean Rule 1. “Rule: 00” this mean the implied rule.
