Hi I'm running the Check point Endpoint Security VPN R75 (which replaces SecureClient) for Windows and it crashes my laptop very often. Now I've fixed it and due to the crashes I upgraded to Windows 8.

Long story short, I don't want to go though that process anymore. I want to use the built-in Windows 8 VPN client to connect to the Network which works by using the Checkpoit VPN software.

Steps I've taken

  1. I have already enrolled and saved certificate (.p12).
  2. Added/imported the certificate to my local profile
  3. Followed the XP part of this thread
  4. See screenshots for the configs Security tab Security tab advanced settings Security tab smartcard or certification properties

Hopefully I can get some help configuring this without the use of Checkpoint VPN.

  • See if this note applies to your case.

  • it seems that only in Windows 8.1 can use built in VPN to replace checkpoint client. :-) see here

And then "Request New Certificate" and you follow what is needed for your certificate/token/smartcard
