Might take a closer look at the Checkpoint to see if it is
doing Port Address Translation (PAT) in addition to NAT.
If I recall correctly, the older versions of Checkpoints
software did PAT, which caused folks problems when an app
wanted to use specific tcp/udp port numbers (for example,
when trying to use an non-checkpoint VPN box on the inside
of the checkpoint).

Think the FXS is a Foreign Exchange interface intended to tie
a ser-accessible gateway to a telephone/pbx line (not to a
telephone instrument).
