SPLAT – Unable to log into Smart Portal


When trying to log into Smart Portal on a pre-R65 Check Point firewall using Internet Explorer 7, you are unable to log in.


Within Internet Explorer disable MS XML.
This can be done via Tools > internet Options >Advanced > Security, and untick “Enable native XML HTTP support”.
