I operate the same connection using the power shell script shown above.

and always getting  this exception:

PSMessageDetails :

ErrorDetails : 
InvocationInfo : System.Management.Automation.InvocationInfo
ScriptStackTrace : at <ScriptBlock>, C:\users\tal aruety\downloads\config.ps1: line 79

Any ideas how to do this?

I see that this script is for Check Point Capsule VPN for Windows 10 only (You have to first download an app from Windows store) - and you are using the Endpoint Security VPN for Windows Client instead... See sk67820: Check Point RemoteAccessSolutions for the different client flavors !

Hi, Thank you for metntioning that.

Though this article does not show CLI\POWERSHELL tools to initiate a vpn connection.

I need a solution that will do the same thing i do with the windows client, just from comman prompt or power shell.

Are you familiar with such a solution?

Endpoint Security VPN Client can be used from Command Line - see Remote Access Clients for Windows 32/64- bit Administration Guide E80.72 and Higher p128ff, Remote AccessClients Command Line:
