How to configure Check Point VPN-1/FireWall-1 Gateway

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -

Hi folks,

I installed Check Point VPN-1/FireWall-1 FP3 and later wanted to Check Point VPN-1 Firewall-1, to allow remote VPN client to access the protected resources behind the firewall.

The initial stages went on smoothly as I was able create network objects, configured user for remote access, configured the firewall object. But the problem arose when I tried to create a certificate. After clicking the Certificates tab, the certificate state reads, "there is no certificate for this object”. So I clicked on generate and then the save button, which gave me the error;

“VPN-1 Secure Client

            Internal CA cannot find the reference number in its database.

            Enter your reference number and try again.

            If this error occurs again, make sure your authorization code has not expired. (Error no. -117).”

What does this mean? Yet it’s a new installation and not a renewal. Please suggest.
