Zero Touch Cloud Service

The Zero Touch Cloud Service lets you easily manage the initial deployment of your gateways in the Check Point Zero Touch Portal.

Note - You cannot use Zero Touch if you connect to the internet through a proxy server.

Zero Touch enables a gateway to automatically fetch settings from the cloud when it is connected to the internet for the first time.

Note - The appliance is fully configured after you complete the First Time Configuration Wizard (click Finish on the final screen or click Quit on an earlier screen after you enter a username and password). To use the Zero Touch Cloud Service after this point, you must first restore the factory defaults.

If the gateway connects to the internet using DHCP, the gateway fetches the Zero Touch settings without any additional action. If no DHCP service is available, you must run the First Time Configuration Wizard, configure the Internet Connection settings, and then fetch the settings from the Zero Touch server.

To connect to the Zero Touch server from the First Time Configuration Wizard:

  1. In the Welcome page of the First Time Configuration Wizard, click Fetch Settings from the Cloud.

  2. In the window that opens, click Yes to confirm that you want to proceed.

  3. The Internet connection page of the First Time Configuration Wizard opens. Configure your Internet connection and click Connect.

  4. The settings are automatically downloaded and installed.

  5. A new window opens and shows the installation status. It may take several minutes until the installation is complete.

Note - If a collision is detected between an internal network (LAN) and an IP returned via DHCP (WAN), the conflicting LAN address is changed automatically. If a colliding LAN IP address is changed, a message appears in the system logs.

When you reconnect to the WebUI or click Refresh, the browser opens to show the status of the installation process.

After the gateway downloads and successfully applies the settings, it does not connect to the Zero Touch server again.
