Two interface firewall, when I config the tcp/ip settings on the
interfaces I've been coding the default gateway for each pointing to
the "nearest" router ip address. When I code the second interface
default gateway, up pops a warning about having multiple gateways.
What is the proper way to config this for a Check Point firewall?

Forgetting equal-cost multi-path, backup-links, load-sharing, etc. you
should only have one default gateway. That would normally be your
upstream router/firewall that leads to the Internet.

You Should only need the default gateway on one NIC. If it is an internet
gateway for example it would be the external one. The default gateway
should then be that of your router (or ISP's router if it is ISP managed.)

Then put your LAN clients to have a default route of the internal NIC and
you have a gateway for them to reach the internet

Hope this helps.
