I have a brand new laptop (yay!) running 64bit Oneiric Ocelot and I'm still figuring out the pieces missing from my old 32bit system. I need to connect to a CheckPoint SSL vpn at work, but there seems to be no official client for 64bit linux.
From the looks of it it's a simple SSL tunnel of some kind, but I have no details. On my old system I used to run the SNX software but there's no 64bit version available, so I'm looking for options.
Is there a compatible software? Can I somehow run the 32bit client? Can I configure the VPN using the usual system tools?
For what it's worth I've been able to run the old snx client inside a 32 bit chroot jail, following for the most part the instructions at ubuntuforums.org. You can skip the parts about mounting filesystems in the chroot environment, but you'll need to install a 32 bit kernel, libX6 and libstdc++5 inside the chrooted environment.
