Canot SCP to Checkpoint firewall

Posted: February 20, 2014 in CheckPoint

When you SCP to Checkpoint SPLAT firewall and get the error “lost connection”, this is what you may see

To resolve this do the following

1. make sure the admin shell has been changed from /bin/cpshell to /bin/bash

chsh admin
Changing shell for admin.
New shell [/bin/cpshell]: /bin/bash
Shell changed.

2. create a new file “touch /etc/scpusers”

3. edit the file and add the users you want to allow for scp

more /etc/scpusers

4. restart the ssh service ( I did not have to restart and it just worked)

service sshd restart

  • Need to confirm an IP Appliance’s serial number (Previous Nokia device)?
If you are physically next to the device, look for a label on the physical box.

    1. If you are remotely accessing the firewall, log into Voyager, then look for “Unit SN” under the “Basic IPSO Information” section of the homepage.
    2. Run the following IPSO command:

      ipso[admin]# ipsctl hw:eeprom:serial_number
      hw:eeprom:serial_number = 9xxxxxxxx4

      or you can run: ipsctl -a | grep serial, which will give you all serial numbers related to different parts.

      ipso[admin]# ipsctl -a | grep "serial"
      hw:eeprom:motherboard:serial_number = 94072202114
      hw:eeprom:cpci_1:serial_number = 94072301073
      hw:eeprom:cpci_2:serial_number = 94072301093
      hw:eeprom:power_a:serial_number = SH52618
      hw:eeprom:power_b:serial_number = SH52471
      hw:eeprom:wx_3:serial_number = 94072202755
      hw:eeprom:viper_4:serial_number = 94072300835
      hw:eeprom:wx_1_1:serial_number = 94073601141
      hw:eeprom:serial_number = 9xxxxxxxx4
      hw:motherboard:serialnumber = 0
      hw:chassis:serialnumber = 9xxxxxxxx4

    3. In CLISH, you can run command: “show asset hardware”, which will also give you much information about major parts.

      ipso[admin]# clish
      NokiaIP1260:102> show asset hardware
      Chassis Serial Number: 9xxxxxxxx4
