<H3>What this screen tells you</H3>

This screen displays the actual ruleset that is installed on your
firewall.  A Checkpoint Firewall-1 security policy consists of a
collection of "rules," each of which specifys one or more source IP 
addresses, one or more destination IP addresses, a service to be used
between these two points, and the action to take if traffic through the
firewall matches the combination of source, destination, and service.
Furthermore, Firewall-1 allows the level of logging (tracking) to be set
for each rule, allows the specification of the time of day when a rule
is enabled, and which firewall or interface the rule applies to.  Last,
some comments from the firewall administrators may be in the last
column.
<P>
Further down the page, configurations for other various firewall options
including NAT, logging, services, firewall properties, and packet spoofing
settings are shown.
