    G'day
    I've just upgraded out Firewall, Internet pipe and all connected routers.

    My Firewall is Checkpoint on a 2003 Server. It has 4 interfaces (Internet,
    LAN, DMZ and other Org)
    I'm having some big problems and it all seems to be reated as to how routing
    works on 2003.

    Before the upgrade I had a small number of static routes to send external
    traffic to the correct path
    and that was it. I didn't have default gateways defined on the network cards
    either.
    Now I have to have a default gteway assigned to my Internet interface and
    I've had to include
    a number of Static Routes to my internal network. I've been trawloing the
    web for some accurate info
    on how Windows Routing works but it all seems incomplete.
    Help.

    Mark,
    If you set up the outside interface with the ISP's router as the gateway,
    and the inside interfaces with their IP address but no gateway, what
    problems are you having after that?
    If you have other subnets that are not directly connected to one of the
    firewall's interfaces you will need to add a route giving them the next hop
    router to use.
