Anyone else annoyed with the speed of 115200 bps for the serial port on Check Point’s 1100 appliances? I am, because our terminal servers connect with 9600 bps. But this can be changed. Even if supportcenter.checkpoint.com does not offer any hint, the solution is quite simple:

  1. Get a connection to the appliance with 115200.
  2. Change to expert mode.
  3. Issue “fw_setenv baudrate 9600” there.
  4. Reboot.
  5. Connect with 9600.
  6. Enjoy.

To verify which baudrate you are using, issue “fw_printenv baudrate“.
