The system checks the NAT, IPSec VPN, and ACL policy information about firewalls during path calculation to demonstrate accurate traffic path status, but this information cannot be retrieved directly via CLI commands for CheckPoint firewalls. To solve this problem, the system provides CheckPoint OPSEC Manager to retrieve the data from your existing CheckPoint OPSEC management system, save the data and further use it during path calculation.

Note: This method does not apply to Checkpoint Firewall R80. To discover and retrieve data of Checkpoint Firewall R80, see Discovering Checkpoint Firewall R80 for details.
