Use Windows 10 VPN client to connect to Checkpoint Gateway

Jump to solution

Hi Checkmates,

 

I want to use the Windows 10 embedded VPN client instead of using the Checkpoint Endpoint Remote Access client.

Do you know if this is feasible;

Thank you!

If you use Check Point Capsule VPN downloaded from Win Store, yes.

Unless you have a legacy license, most gateway licenses include support for 5 remote access users.
With more users than that, yes, you will have an issue as the MAB license is one of the licenses required for remote access users (the others are either Endpoint licenses or legacy ACCESS licenses).

The Win 8.1 VPN PlugIn was a CP product, but now it is CP Capsule VPN from Windows Store.

Not currently supported.
You would need to use our app from the Windows Store.

PhoneBoy i make a try to install it but i did not manage to do it. Do you own any configuration guide which explains the way that i must configure the Checkpoint gateway in order to make a successful vpn connection from the my windows 10 computer where i have install the CP Capsule VPN plugin;

Thank you!
