SystemMen - How to install Check Point VPN client in Linux? How to do this? This article will show you how to connect Check Point VPN from a Linux computer.

If your company is using Check Point firewall device and you are using a Linux computer, you will have a small problem.

Check Point client supports very well for Windows and MacOS, mobile. However, with Linux, that is a problem. Check Point currently only supports SSL VPN for Linux devices, so it will have a slightly different connection.

Access to Check Point SSL server

For Windows computers, you have a client application under your computer. You use it to connect to the vpn server. As for Linux, you access it through the browser.

Open the browser and type the IP (or domain) of the vpn server with the URI configuration ssl of Check Point. The example here is https://192.168.10.10/sslvpn.
