Symptom

A check point cluster control protocal uses 8116 udp for its high availability

Cause

Wrong configuration

Solution

The Check Point Cluster Control Protocol is used for internal communication between Hgh Availability Cluster Members. This

link is used for report and query the cluster state, probing and load balancing.
You should reconfigure the system so other systems do not need to process the broadcast packets.
