Hi Guys,

I am trying to do a clean install of a Checkpoint IP Appliance (IP390) using FTP because USB is not supported,

This is where I get stuck with the FTP SIZE error (see bootmgr output below)

Enter a number [1-4]: 1

Choose interface speed from the following list:
1) 1000Mbit/sec
2) 100Mbit/sec
3) 10Mbit/sec
Enter a number [1-3]: 2
Half or full duplex? [h/f] [h] f
Enter IP address of FTP server (10.0.40.59):
Enter user name (admin): admin
Enter password for "admin":
Enter Directory on the FTP server (C:UsersPublicCheckpointCheck_Point_R77.10_T151_Install_and_Upgrade.Gaia):

Is this a flash-based (or hybrid) system (No): n
Network Interface = eth1, speed = 100M, full-duplex
Client IP address = 10.0.40.58
Client Netmask length = 24
FTP Server IP address = 10.0.40.59
FTP user = admin
FTP Directory = C:UsersPublicCheckpointCheck_Point_R77.10_T151_Install_and_Upgrade.Gaia
Flash-based/Hybrid Install = No

Are these values correct ? [y/n] (y)
e1000: eth1: e1000_watchdog: NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex, Flow Control: RX/TX
e1000: eth1: e1000_watchdog: 10/100 speed: disabling TSO

Any ideas on what could be the cause? Thanks in anticipation

    Could be a corrupt image. Check the md5sum. It should be 911fa476623794712cd8fb501f6e7375 .

    Does the FTP function from another client?

    Thanks for the reply, The MD5 checksum seems to be okay,


    For your second question the FTP I am using is 3CDaemon as the software,

    I installed it on my windows 7 OS and I also extracted the ISO as written on checkpoint's website.

    They also asked me to run a file called copyrpms.bat which I did.

    Thanks a lot for the response (I have been all over the web looking for answers)

    How much drive space is available on the IP390 versus the size of the image?

    It looks like the IP390 went end-of-sale almost a year ago... maybe you need an older/smaller version to install on it? Just a thought.

    Hi Bert,

    There is drive space available on the appliance, Thanks for the suggestion, I will try with a lower version and see if it works

    God Bless You
