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
You log in with your vpn account. The main window will appear.
Here, if you click the
Connect button, you will definitely connect the vpn to failure. You need to click the
Settings button that I highlighted in the image below.
In the Settings window, you need to download 2 installation script files that I highlighted in the image below.
You must install both, then you can connect vpn successfully.
Install Check Point agent on Linux computer
The 2 script files you downloaded above are:
Now, we will install these 2 scripts. Note, you need root access (or sudo) to install.
First, we will install the script
cshell_install.sh. You need to install the dependency package for it before installing it.
# apt-get install libnss3-tools -y
# bash cshell_install.sh Start Check Point Mobile Access Portal Agent installation Extracting Mobile Access Portal Agent... Done Installing Mobile Access Portal Agent... Done Installing certificate... Done Starting Mobile Access Portal Agent... Done Installation complete
Next, we will install script
snx_install.sh and its dependencies.
# apt-get install libstdc++5:i386 libpam0g:i386 -y
Then install this script.
# bash snx_install.sh Installation successfull
After installation is complete, now press the
Connect button on the Check Point VPN main window on the browser.
Another window will display your VPN information. And on the main window, the VPN state will look like the image below.
