Hello; I've googled this topic and searched through these forums, but almost ALL the threads I pull up are several years old (as in: 2004, 2005, etc.) At that time, there appeared to be several issues with connecting to Checkpoint. I got approval to use my own MacBook at work instead of the old T42 the company gave me. My question is on the VPN: they use a Checkpoint VPN-1 Client for their Windows laptops. Will the built-in VPN client in Tiger effectively take the place of this for my MacBook? If not, Checkpoint has a Mac OS X client - but I have found no thread on how well it works. Does anyone have any experience with it?
Thank you in advance for any guidance you can give me. I don't think so. My work uses Checkpoint VPN-1 (Certificates) as well. It is chiefly a Windoze shop but they tolerate a handful of Mac users. My IT guy gave me a copy of VPN Tracker 4.9 to use on my home desktop computer. Checkpoint also has their own Mac client that I believe is free download but you use it with one of those key fobs that you push the button and it kicks out a four digit code that you append onto the tailend of your user PIN.
I don't know enough about the VPN server side to know how, at the server level, you enable what methods of access. But both the Certificates method and the 'key fob' method works on our Checkpoint VPN - we have to use the key fob version on our laptops. See if your company management and IT Dept would look into one or the other of those for you, depending on how they have their Checkpoint VPN configured. I have the same issue (with other machines not being able to access my Mac when the SecureClient software was installed). I also found the same solution (i.e. Selecting 'Disable Security Policy' from the SecureClient-Tools menu.
However, when I reboot, the security policy is enabled again. Does anyone know of a way to have the security policy disabled by default? BTW, the release notes for the Mac version include some handy instructions for stopping the SecureClient software launching for every user when they log in (the background daemons are still running though). Check out the FAQ at the end of the release notes for details.
