Checkpoint’s Endpoint Security VPN Client starts when I log into my Mac (Mac OS X 10.9.5).
- How can I make it not start automatically?
- Then, how can I start it manually when I need it?

Simplest way to stop the Check Point End Client auto launch on Mac OS.
Right click the End client padlock in the 'Menu Bar'. From the Drop-down select VPN Options> When the Options popup window opens, Select> the Properties Button> next, Select> Settings tab> Under the Always-Connect section> Un-check the box> Enable Always-Connect! Click (OK) to save the configuration. Presto...no more annoying auto launch logon window.
Next time you need to connect to your VPN: Right click the padlock in the Menu Bar and select Connect from the Drop-down.
In MacOS High Sierra the steps are nearly the same but one more file needs to be changed. Just do the following:
To stop it from starting automatically, edit
/Library/LaunchAgents/com.checkpoint.eps.gui.plist and change:
Then do the same in one more file, edit
/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.checkpoint.epc.service.plist and change:
Then to start it when you need it, look in the Applications folder, it’s called, “Endpoint Security VPN.”
