Hello Alessandro,

a possible solution (if supported on Checkpoint side)  is to map the FW VIP on a multicast MAC address that does not belong the the range for IPv4 multicast as explained in the following link.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_configuration_example09186a0080a07203.shtml#configs

any MAC with the last significant bit of most significant octet set to 1 is multicast for example

0300.5e11.1111.

Hope to help

Giuseppe
