EIGRP through Check Point firewalls

Have a question or want to start a discussion? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Hello all,

I have 2 Cisco routing switches (one 6513, one 6509) seperated by a
pair of CheckPoint firewalls in High Availability mode running
SecurePlatform R60 on Dell 2850 servers.

I would like to know if it is possible to pass the EIGRP protocol
between the routers in order to enable dynamic routing.  So far, all of
our attempts to do so have failed, and CheckPoint was no help at all.

When trying to do EIGRP neighbor statements, I get an error saying that
that IP is not on the same network...which is true, because it's on the
other side of the firewall.  So, I'm assuming that I won't be able to
do neighbor statements.

Anyways, if someone could please share their potential knowledge, I
would greatly appreciate it.
