Has anybody been able to use a VPN connection to CheckPoint from a Mac?
My test until now:
- Tried the standard Html page to login, no success because the java applet cannot be loaded
- Downloaded a full featured Checkpoint client, no success (connection not made)
- Tried IPSecuritas, same results
Until now the most interesting result were installing the SNX client from CheckPoint and then creating a .snxrc profile, after that snx is able to connect like so
snx Check Point's Mac SNX build 800005012 Please enter your password: SNX - connected. Session parameters: =================== Office Mode IP : 192.168.1.173 DNS Server : 172.16.0.190 Secondary DNS Server: 172.16.0.191 Timeout : 12 hours
Problem is that at this point it seems to connect (because IP address are correct and also because if I provide a wrong password it give me the correct unsuccesful logon message) but if I do a ifconfig I see that the interface created from Checkpoint do not have an IP address and also if I try to add one using ifconfig I'm not able to ping any machine on the remote network
ifconfig en7 en7: flags=8862<BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1350 ether 54:55:43:44:52:00 Check Point Virtual Network Adapter
Any idea about I can assign a proper IP address to the interface so that I can use the remote network?
