Check Point VPN Client On Centos
On a windows PC we are running the "Check Point VPN-1 SecuRemote" VPN client to connect to a third party firewall, just to FTP up text files. (Don't ask it's legacy stuff). We have no control over the firewall.

The version installed is
(actual install file name).

Now being windows this client is not very stable and the machine needs frequent reboots etc. Basically a pain in the ass. We would like to install a VPN client on a Centos Box to give us all the good things we have come to expect from Linux.

From reading some of the forum posts I can see that there are several contenders, but has anyone actually had success connecting to a Checkpoint firewall from a Linux client?
Tips and Pointers will be much appreciated.

As far as I know check point is proprietary, but there has been some success getting interoperability working between open/freeswan and checkpoint.

Has information regarding how to set this up.
