Win 10 VPN Checkpoint client doesn't traverse pfSense home firewall

My employer uses a checkpoint firewall, and I have a home solution using pfSense community edition. The pfSense router on my side is connected to Comcast / XFinity using a Cable Modem, so the pfSense WAN connection gets the IP address (public 24.x.x.x) from Comcast. My VPN client starts trying to connect, gets to 47% and doesn't complete the connection.

I have NAT rules in place for IPSEC (by default done by pfSense) as well as setup a specific rule to poke a hole to the actual VPN server.

What can I do to further troubleshoot this, I took wireshark traces, but am not versed enough in IPSec to troubleshoot it further.

As far as I know, unless you have a fairly restrictive outbound policy, no specific rules should be required.
What rules do you have?
Maybe post the packet traces?

Something was borked in my pfSense Config, DNS (using unbound) was not working correctly today. I had to restore an old config (thanks to having autobackup) and that restore fixed also the VPN issue.
