You can use Directed Mode in WAAS to tunnel the optimized traffic in UDP. Note that this still requires the 3-way handshake for the connection to succeed, including passing the auto-discovery option (0x21) used by WAAS.
WAAS modifies the sequence numbers in the packets in order to accelerate them; Check Point firewall built-in IPS (also called SmartDefense in R65 and before) has a sequence number verification function; this function must be disabled (monitor only often still drops the connection; unfortunately even with IPS R70...)
WAAS central manager auto-discovery uses TCP options which are cleared by firewalls; I would recommend not to use auto-dicovery of the WAAS central manager (CM) but to enter the CM's IP address manually in each WAE accelerator device (CLI: central-manager address 10.10.10.10 or whatever IP)
The WAAS auto-discovery (AD) process occurs between WAAS devices functioning in "application accelerator" mode, not to/from the Central Manager. The Central Manager isn't involved in the actual optimization of traffic.
The unmanaged mode is also known as Network only switching, which is introduced in Brazos release. It adds the flexibility for customer to use only network automation for service appliance.

Usually, we can access ESXi Shell by pressing Alt+F1 from ESXi DCUI (Direct Console User Interface).
But on HyperFlex system, it just shows black window.
This is expected behavior because HyperFlex redirects ESXi Shell output to SoL...
