Important Note:

If R76 LTE Security Gateway is managed by a Management Server without LTE Hotfix, a specific kernel parameter should be set on R76 LTE Security Gateway during boot.

Follow sk26202 (Changing the kernel global parameters for Check Point Security Gateway) to permanently set the value of kernel parameter gtp_allow_bc_ver_entry to 1 (one):

  1. Connect to command line on R76 LTE Security Gateway (over SSH, or console).

  2. Log in to Expert mode.

  3. Permanently set the value of kernel parameter 'gtp_allow_bc_ver_entry' to 1:

    1. Create the $FWDIR/boot/modules/fwkern.conf file if it does not exist:

      [Expert@HostName]# touch $FWDIR/boot/modules/fwkern.conf

    2. Edit the $FWDIR/boot/modules/fwkern.conf file in Vi editor:

      [Expert@HostName]# vi  $FWDIR/boot/modules/fwkern.conf

    3. Add the following line (spaces are not allowed):


    4. Save the changes in the file and exit from Vi editor.

    5. Check that the value was set for the 'gtp_allow_bc_ver_entry' parameter:

      [Expert@HostName]# grep "gtp_allow_bc_ver_entry"  $FWDIR/boot/modules/fwkern.conf

  4. Reboot the R76 LTE Security Gateway.

  5. Verify that the value of kernel parameter was set to 1:

    [Expert@HostName]# fw ctl get int gtp_allow_bc_ver_entry

    Should get
    gtp_allow_bc_ver_entry = 1
