Using Checkpoint SSL Network Extender (SNX) Client on Slackware
Checkpoint SSL Network Extender is a thin client used for remote connection to a Checkpoint Security Gateway 1). It is used, for instance, by corporations to enable secure remote access by employees.
This article describes how to configure a Slackware system so that you can use the Checkpoint SNX client.
In addition to a full Slackware installation, the following additional packages/libraries are required to run the SNX client:
- Full 32-bit Slackware system or full 64-bit Slackware system with Eric Hameleers's multilib packages installed
- Linux-PAM - available from Vincent Batts's PAM for Slackware projecthttp://www.slackware.com/~vbatts/pam/
If you are comfortable building/installing these packages, this may be all you need to know.
The remainder of this is devoted to more detailed description of the steps necessary to install the required Linux-PAM library. Multilib installation is not covered here as it is well documented elsewhere.
