CheckPoint's HA only works where two firewalls are acting "in parallel"
because they basically share the state tables between the firewalls. The
routing must support dynamic updating so that the "default route" can be
redirected as appropriate. Qualix HA+ does fail over the IPs, etc.

I would imagine so, provided it's set up correctly. The whole purpose
for using SKIP is for interoperability. I doubt FireWall-1 cares if SKIP
is coming from a FireWall or a Win95 SKIP client.
