Checkpoint Lea connection doing reverse DNS lookups - How to Stop it

We have a checkpoint Lea connector that is doing reverse DNS lookups it seems for all the traffic in the logs being received. I have used the gui mgmt piece to turn all DNS lookups off but it is still doing the reverse lookups. (Connector is setup to be remotely managed by a Connector Appliance.)

Looking for what file on the Smart connector itself can disable the reverse lookup function.

To disable DNS lookups, you need to configure in all destinations under Connector Appliance:-

1. Go to each destination and select Modify destination settings | Network | Enable Name Resolution - set to 'No'

2. Restart the connector.
