Anyone help?

Hi,

SecureClient doesn’t support 64 bit versions of Windows. You may use Endpoint Connect R73 which does support 64 bit versions of Windows.

Note that it requires the gateway to be at least R65 HFA40, and a few settings on the security management server, as appear in page #15 of the Endpoint Connect Admin guide (Configuring the Gateway Using SmartDashboard -> Obligatory Settings) which is found at http://downloads.checkpoint.com/dc/download.htm?ID=8631.

Thanks,
Gil

I got this info from other places as well.
The question is when will "VPN-1 SecuRemote/SecureClient NGX R60" support Windows 7 64 bits?
I work for a consulting company and I need to make my client change its settings and quite possibly upgrade his Security gateway cause Checkpoint doesn't release a 64 bit version of the client, even many months after Windows 7 64 bit was brought to the market. This is not acceptable.

I am sure I am not alone asking for this. Win 7 64 bit is rapidly becoming mainstream.

Please confirm what is the roadmap for VPN-1 SecuRemote/Secure Client NGX60.

Thanks

Leonardo

Endpoint Connect R73, which supports Windows 7 (32 and 64 bit), can be downloaded from https://supportcenter.checkpoint.com/supportcenter/portal?eventSubmit_doGoviewsolutiondetails=&solutionid=sk43446#EPC

Thanks,

Leonardo,
secureremote/secureclient are being phased out (end of support has been extended to the end of this year). There will never be a 64 bit version (don't like it either).
you can move to endpoint connect (if you have secureclient licenses)=secureclient without desktop policy, runs on port 443 (=change on gateway required and minimum version required)
you can move to endpoint security secure access (required installation of "endpoint security server") if you currently have secureclient integrity licenses

Endpoint discovery client is EA now. This is supposed to replace the secureclient.
Includes desktop policy again managed centrally through the dashboard.
