Problems with Check Point SecuRemote/SecureClient on Microsoft Windows 7

by admin_import on 02/05/2010

At the site “Check Point products support for Windows 7 [sk43446]” is written that “VPN-1 SecuRemote/SecureClient NGX R60 HFA 03” support Mircosoft Windows 7 (only 32-Bit).

But I made bad experiences with working SecuRemote/SecureClient on Windows 7 (over 30 Windows 7 Clients), so that i can not recommend to use SecuRemote/SecureClient on Windows 7.

Here are some of the problems:

  • Not every Cell-Phone-Driver is working right (for example: unable to use UMTS with newest DELL Cell-Phone-Drivers for VPN)
  • Unable to upload files greater 70kb via http-put (for example: Upload to typo3)
  • Connection-Fails or -Interruption on Terminal-Server-Sessions (RDP) in local LAN, when VPN is not running
  • Windows 7 is not working fast and stable (for example: unable or slow login)

After a few week searching for a network-error and a call at the Microsoft Support – they did a very good job – , we disabled the SecuRemote-Binding on the LAN-Interface, disabled the SecuRemote-Kernel-Driver and all problems have gone.

To solve the problem total we deinstalled SecuRemote/SecureClient on every notebook and installed the new Check Point Endpoint Connect R73 (works on 32-Bit & 64-Bit). After the installation of the new VPN Client, we do not have anymore any problems!
