Check Point VPN-1 NG and NGX

A tool for using the command fw monitor

AERAsec Network Services and Security GmbH


Platform: Any platform for Check Point NG or NGX
Product: Check Point FireWall-1/VPN-1
Problem: The command fw monitor is very flexible and shows a lot of useful options. Some administrators have problems with the correct syntax because it differs from the well known commands tcpdump or snoop
Workaround/Fix: AERAsec provides a Shell Script which adapts the use of fw monitor to tcpdump
It works at least under Linux, Check Point SecurePlatform and Nokia IPSO.

On this server you find the Shell Script as well as a zipped Shell Script.

Further on, Check Point provides a very good Whitepaper about the exact syntax of fw monitor.
