Thank you for your response. But my checkpoint Smart console and gateway (firewall) are at R.77.10. I'm not finding any document to convert checkpoint configuration of above version using forticonvertor to fortigate.
So I never worked with checkpoint FWs. I will do a checkpoint > fortigate migration and curios about some stuff in checkpoint. I especially would like someone that have done the same migration (from checkpoint > fortigate)
In Fortigate, to segmenting the firewall into several domains, we call them a VDOM. Basically a firewall inside a firewall (you guys probably know that already..). What is it called in the checkpoint world?
In the “Forti” world, we have fortimanagers that can manage several firewall from only one management plane which make it very easy to administer the firewalls (especially if you have like 10 fortigates). Do you call it “mds” in the checkpoint world? Does it work the same way as a fortimanager?
I read something about VPN communities. The checkpoint firewall do have a vpn community. Is that equivalent to something like SD-WAN? How does it really work?
I obviously already googled all of this but have a hard time to understand the documentation.
2. SMS ( Security Mgmt Server ) if you want to manage them all from a single 'ADOM'-like wise in FMG, or MDS ( Multi-Domain Server / Provider-1 ) if you want to create 'ADOM's like in FMG for different reasons
3. SD-WAN is not necessarily related to VPN Communities. In Forti world you have hub-n-spoke, site-to-site, or remote-access in relates to VPN, whereas in CP world you have mesh / star
