You are actually quite right,. Once you start to see several proxy IP's that
several subnets behind your gateway then you be in trouble.
If you have a VRRP HA Checkpoint then things will brake, as IKE negotiations
happen against the interface IP and not the VRRP IP/.
In a situation like this, if you think about it will be more cost effective
rid of the Checkpoints and stick with Netscreens all the way.
I heard folks react quite interesting when you say that.. "replace them"...
If you do the analysis, then you will realize that by doing that "replacing"
you will be saving money.
As you can see the administration time will be lower, you will have a more
solution, and the recovery time in case of disaster recovery will be a
fraction of the
time that will take the recovery of the Checkpoint.
Stick to the good stuff... [NS] Get rid of the problems... [ChPoints]
