I am in the process of evaluating FW-1 2.0 running on Solaris 2.5.
Yesterday, an alert popped up on the screen "Status firewall switching
from old state 'installed' to new state 'disconnected'" but it kept
functioning. I also noticed in the Service window the icon of a brickwall
and pc changed to two telephone poles connected with wires with a large x
across it. Two other configuration notes which may have some influence,
I have 3 interfaces(having troubles with the 3rd one, but that's a whole
different question) and am using the hide address feature of Address
Translation. I am really puzzled, a) what does this mean, b) what caused
it, c) is it something I should worry about (I will until I know a&b),
and d) how do I prevent it from happening assuming it's bad????

I tried all day to contact the VAR who sent me the stuff and am running
out of time, oh yea, I found calling Checkpoint itself to be less than
fruitful. If anyone knows of a good reseller(that can SUPPORT FW-1) in
the midwest please let me know, via my email or phone, please don't
bother the rest of the list with this portion.
