If you’re using older versions of Check Point remote access (VPN) / Endpoint or Check Point Harmony Endpoint, below is a quick process to patch your VPN/Endpoint clients and restore VPN connectivity.
Note: Since most computers are not booted often (only sleep and hibernate), their VPN connectivity will
not be interrupted and we recommend that you continue patching centrally (GPO / SCCM).
- Step #1: Check VPN client version. Use one of 3 options below to find your version.
If your client version is: Check Point Endpoint VPN E80.81 to E81.10 or Check Point End Point Security E80.61 to E81.10, follow the below steps:
- Step #2: For end users with VPN connection:
- Click here to download a patch to your computer
- Use Check Point Compliance (Video) /GPO (SK171338)/SCCM to Patch the Endpoint VPN Client.
- Step #3: For end users who lost VPN connectivity (where VPN is required for central patch distribution)
Please note the following regarding this step:
- • This patch works on Windows 7 and 10 that run one of these versions E80.81 – E81.10
- • For users without local admin privileges, instruct them to reboot before applying the patch.
- • For Endpoint Security Client or Harmony Endpoint users, please provide the end-user with the uninstall password for patch installation process. This is not required for Endpoint Security VPN users.
- • Installing the patch on versions E80.81 or E80.82 requires end-users to have administration privileges
- We recommend you send an email to all your employees to install the patch or use remote control utility (e.g. Zoom, LogMeIn, TeamViewer) to install the patch.
