The last Checkpoint I had to deal with was a Nokia IP330 running VPN-1
which IIRC used OpenBSD or NetBSD as its base OS.
In any event, the only success I ever had connecting to it was using
Checkpoint's own VPN client. Never had any joy with anything else
probably due to some proprietary additions.
A quick search on google for "Secure Client Linux" comes up with some
stuff about Linux being unsupported since 2005 or 2006 and even then
only on RedHat kernels.
Not looking good I think.
