MEP for Remote Users with MAC and Linux

Hello, I hope this finds you well.

In these days of massive homeworking I would like to know if it is possible to use MEP or Secondary Connect with mac and linux-snx remote users.

All company is working from home now and I would like users not to depend on a single entry point but since some of them use mac and linux-snx I can't seem to activate the solutions.

Is there any option to use it?

Thank you,

 

Alex

Mac does not support Secondary Connect.
SNX in general I don't believe supports Secondary Connect either.
Best to engage with your local Check Point office around this requirement.

Thank you for the answer. At the moment, it seems that the gateway is supporting all the load without problems.
IMHO, to not to have a Linux client or to require that all users use Windows to enable some features are aspects to be improved in Check Point.
Lets hope to see it in roadmap for future versions.

Secondary Connect is in the roadmap for Mac, but don't know the exact timelines.

For Linux, the plan is to support Strongswan versus develop a native client.
We have an official Customer Release on top of R80.30 that officially enables this, but we have some instructions on the community for this:

To the extent it supports Secondary Connect-like functionality, I don't know.

The local office can assist you with getting formal commitments on these things.
