Checkpoint Firewalls and GNS3

Can GNS3 simulate Checkpoint Firewalls and their configuration? I see jobs that require this, and I was wondering if I could learn how to configure it better with GNS3, or if it's even possible to do on this? If it can't be, what's the alternative? Buying a real firewall with Checkpoint on it?

    I too am interested in this answer... Recently applied for a position which wanted Checkpoint Firewall experience. I don't believe this product to be too different from the other firewall products out there, but it helps when one can say that one worked on the real thing.

    I see that CBT Nuggets has a video series out on Checkpoint in case no simulation exists for it.

    You would do much better to use VMware workstation to simulate Check Point. I have training to help you do so too! Pm me and I will give you a week of free training from PluralSight. Also if you have any questions on Check Point, Cisco etc I don't mind.

    Yes we can load the CheckPoint in GNS3 along with the SmartConsole Application but this would last for only 15 days trial period, after 15 days you have to reinstall the GAIA and call it again in GNS3. 15 days window is more than enough to test anything is it?

    Please let me know if you need any more information related to it.
