    R77.20.51 for SMB Appliances Known Limitations

    ID Symptoms
    Threat Emulation
    02407978 In locally managed appliances, it is not possible to create a Threat Prevention exception rule that applies only to the Threat Emulation blade.
    02431813 When running the tecli show statistics command, under "Last Day", the data is from the beginning of the day and not the last 24 hours in a rotating calculation.
    02421870 Threat Emulation is included in the Threat Prevention profile. However, the Threat Emulation engine results are not affected by the confidence level settings. If you set the tracking options for the confidence level to inactive, this does not affect the Threat Emulation logs. 
    02410874  In Small and Mediurm Business Appliances, the configuration of "fail close" behavior when the emulation fails cannot be applied when the engine settings are set to "background" mode, as the file already passed during the emulation attempt.
    02417673 Use Threat Emulation only if your device internet connection has enough bandwidth to upload files to the SandBlast emulation in the cloud. We do not recommend you use Threat Emulation if your internet connection has slow upload speeds such as those found in 3G modems.
    02444614 The options for the CLISH command "tecli a" are not supported.
    02397066 Small Office appliances send archived files in full to the cloud, where they are unzipped to test their content. Logs for archived files will not detail the content of the archive. 
    02397042  Local emulation mode is not supported in Small Office appliances. See sk106210 for specific Check Point appliances that are recommended for local emulation. 
    02397047  In Centrally managed appliances, the MTA configuration is not available. Therefore, when the device is set to prevent, emails over SMTP traffic might not be blocked when passing for the first time, as there is a very limited amount of time the connection can be held until the cloud provides an answer post-emulation.
    If a device passes for the second time, there's local cache on both the gateway side the cloud side who gains data from files passed to it from around the world. 
    02414088 The maximum file size that can be inspected by the Threat Emulation blade in 770/790/1470/1490 appliances is 15M.
    The maximum file size that can be inspected by the Threat Emulation blade in 1200R/730/750/1430/1450 appliances is 10M. 
    02452918 If you perform simultaneous emulation on multiple files, you may exceed the available space. This results in emulation failure with the log "failed to process a file." This is less likely to occur on the more powerful 770/790/1470/1490 appliances due to the larger file storage size.
    VPN Remote Access
    02427882 The default VPN Remote Access cryptography protocol is TLSv1.2. You cannot use Check Point VPN clients prior to EPS E80.62 unless the configuration is altered manually.
    See sk115775 for information on how to change the default protocol.
