IMPORTANT UPDATE

How to Remediate Endpoint and VPN Issues
(in version E81.10 or earlier)

Patch Client VPN/Endpoint versions E81.10 or earlier to ensure productivity

It is important that you apply the following update.

This is a reminder that the following versions of Endpoint/VPN (E80.81 to E81.10 – Windows only) and Harmony Endpoint (E80.61 to E81.10 – Windows only) will stop operating properly, starting 01.01.2021, unless they are patched. To ensure productivity, we urge you to install a new patch according to the instructions below.

Instructions for User

Below is a quick process to patch your computer and restore VPN/Endpoint connectivity.
  • Step #1: Validate if your Check Point VPN/EndPoint Client version is one of the following:
    • • Check Point Endpoint VPN E80.81 to E81.10 – See video
    • • Check Point End Point Security E80.61 to E81.10 – See video
  • Step #2: If your client version is: Check Point Endpoint VPN E80.81 to E81.10 or Check Point End Point Security E80.81 to E81.10, click here to download a patch to your computer.

Instructions for Admin

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.
    • • Option 1:
      Use this SmartLog query to see the version of connected clients (See video)
    • • Option 2:
      Check Point Endpoint VPN E80.81 to E81.10 – See video
    • • Option 3:
      Check Point End Point Security E80.61 to E81.10 – See video

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.
