Re: VPN Connection from Ubuntu to Check Point 730

In the future, please use a more descriptive subject for your posts.

I edited the subject of both ports previously called "Check Point 730."

In general, your options for VPN clients on Linux are SNX or L2TP.

Some discussion not specific to the 730 is here: VPN client for ubuntu 

See this SK: How to establish Client-to-Site VPN from Linux machine to locally managed SMB appliance

hi no need to configure in Command mode right in terminal ? 

Can please send the steps 

normally we will give VPN ip address and user name password to the WIndows and mac machine to access the Firewall.

How do can we deal with TLS1.2 issues?

In VPN client for ubuntu @Victor Chang mentions build 800008016 for TLS1.2 support. How do we get that?

If you're using the CLI version of SNX, only that specific client (which doesn't support TLS 1.2) is available for download.

You may be able to get an updated version with TLS 1.2 support from the TAC.

Actually, just saw that the one available from the SNX page of the gateway itself is an updated version. In my case, I got 800008061.

Check and install pre-requisites documented in sk65210

Download SNX from https://<your-gateway>/CSHELL/snx_install.sh or older version here.

Add the port as needed.

Install it as explained in sk90240

Enable SNX in the VPN page of the Web Portal (locally managed) or SmartConsole gateway object (central management).

Connect as shown in sk116576
