Check Point SSL VPN and Fedora 7


For some reason I had to connect to some VPN provided by a Check Point and since I migrate to Fedora 7 this fails with the following message from the SSL VPN Portal : initialization failed.

My colleague, Den Raf, had the same trouble and pointed me to the segmentation fault of the snx binary 🙁

Installing compat-libstdc++-296 and using the library provided in that package solved the fault :

# LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ snx -h

But I had to reinstall the snx with the snx_install script :

# LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/  ~fred/Desktop/

Then everything worked fine again.

  1. The same problem occurs on Debian Etch or Debian Lenny.

    You can solve it by installing "libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2". Run snx_uninstall, then go to the SSLVPN website again.

  2. Wow. I’ve been looking everywhere for this to work on Ubuntu. I installed the "libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2" package, but snx still couldn’t install. how can i make it work?

    thanks in advance.

  3. I am actually new to this topic and have not encountered, however, I think this is a good solution, it will surely helps a lot shall I need this kind of information in the future. – Jeffrey Nimer
