Here’s the basic use configuration guide on checkpoint firewall:

  • Alter the policy of firewall such that it allows some traffic to pass by while blocking all other. For this, go to Rules > Add Rule > TOP
  • Change the ‘any source’ to ‘new source’ by clicking on each section and changing the desired content.
  • Now, add HTTP under Service section and click on Accept.
  • You can also limit the user’s browsing under the ‘Application and URL filtering’.

This method covers the basic configuration of checkpoint firewall.
