Health and Safety Information


Read the following warnings before setting up or using the appliance.

Warning - Do not block air vents. A minimum 1/2-inch clearance is required.

Warning - This appliance does not contain any user-serviceable parts. Do not remove any covers or attempt to gain access to the inside of the product. Opening the device or modifying it in any way has the risk of personal injury and will void your warranty. The following instructions are for trained service personnel only. To prevent damage to any system board, it is important to handle it with care. The following measures are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from static electricity discharge: When handling the board, to use a grounded wrist strap designed for static discharge elimination. Touch a grounded metal object before removing the board from the antistatic bag. Handle the board by its edges only. Do not touch its components, peripheral chips, memory modules or gold contacts. When handling processor chips or memory modules, avoid touching their pins or gold edge fingers. Restore the communications appliance system board and peripherals back into the antistatic bag when they are not in use or not installed in the chassis. Some circuitry on the system board can continue operating even though the power is switched off. Under no circumstances should the Lithium battery cell used to power the real-time clock be allowed to short. The battery cell may heat up under these conditions and present a burn hazard. Warning - DANGER OF EXPLOSION IF BATTERY IS INCORRECTLY REPLACED. REPLACE ONLY WITH SAME OR EQUIVALENT TYPE RECOMMENDED BY THE MANUFACTURER. DISCARD USED BATTERIES ACCORDING TO THE MANUFACTURER'S INSTRUCTIONS

Disconnect the system board power supply from its power source before you connect or disconnect cables or install or remove any system board components. Failure to do this can result in personnel injury or equipment damage. Avoid short-circuiting the lithium battery; this can cause it to superheat and cause burns if touched. Do not operate the processor without a thermal solution. Damage to the processor can occur in seconds.

VSX-1 Overview

VSX-1 Overview
The VSX-1 (Virtual System eXtension) appliance is a security and VPN solution, designed to meet the demands of large-scale environments. Based on the proven security of VPN-1, VSX provides comprehensive protection for multiple networks or VLANs within complex infrastructures. It securely connects them to shared resources such as the Internet and DMZs, and allows them to safely interact with each other. VSX is supported by SmartDefense Services, which provide up-to-date preemptive security. VSX incorporates the same patented Stateful Inspection and Application Intelligence technologies used in the Check Point VPN-1 product line. It runs on high speed platforms (known as VSX gateways) to deliver superior performance in high-bandwidth environments. Administrators manage VSX via a SmartCenter server or a Provider-1 Multi-Domain Server (MDS), delivering a unified management architecture that supports enterprises and service providers. A VSX gateway contains a complete set of virtual devices that function as physical network components, such as VPN-1 gateways (firewalls), routers, switches, interfaces, and even network cables. Centrally managed, and incorporating key network resources internally, VSX allows businesses to deploy comprehensive firewall and VPN functionality, while reducing hardware investment and improving efficiency. Key Features: Combines Virtual Firewall, VPN, and IPS Consolidates Up to 250 Security Gateways Onto a Single Hardware Platform Includes Virtualized Networking Components- Virtual routers, Virtual switches & Virtual cabling Wire-Speed Security for Gigabit Networks High Availability with Linear Growth Clustering Chapter 1 Introduction 11

Terminology

Terminology
The following VSX terms are used throughout this chapter: Gateway: The VPN-1 engine that enforces the organizations security policy and acts as a security enforcement point. Security Policy: The policy created by the system administrator that regulates the flow of incoming and outgoing communication. SmartCenter Server: The server used by the system administrator to manage the security policy. The organizations databases and security policies are stored on the SmartCenter server and downloaded to the gateway. SmartConsole: GUI applications that are used to manage various aspects of security policy enforcement. For example, SmartView Tracker is a SmartConsole application that manages logs. SmartDashboard: A SmartConsole GUI application that is used by the system administrator to create and manage the security policy. Centrally Managed Deployment: When the gateway and the SmartCenter server are installed on separate machines. Virtual Routers: Independent routing domains within a VSX Gateway that function like physical routers. Virtual System: A routing and security domain featuring firewall and VPN capabilities supported by a standard Check Point Gateway. Multiple Virtual Systems can run concurrently on a single VSX Gateway, isolated from one another by their use of separate system resources and data storage. VSX Clustering: The connection of two or more VSX Gateways in such a way that if one fails, another immediately takes its place. A single VSX Gateway contains multiple Virtual Routers and Virtual Systems.
