Checkpoint SSL Network Extender [SOLVED]

Post#1 by balthasarian » 25 Dec 2016, 13:12

Hi to all Porteus Family,

I'm a very (but very) newbie.
I know I'm now on the learning routine but I need to find a quick way for my problem!

In windows I must connect firm-VPn through CheckPoint Endpoint VPN. I found in linux we can use SNX.
I already downloaded a JRE and JDK files and built modules. No problem.

SNX_for_VPN1_Win7.tgz file from Checkpoints site and extracted to a tmp folder named SNX
And then I gave that command:

---------------------------------------------------------------
guest@porteus:/mnt/sdb5/SNX$ sh snx_install.sh
The installation script requires root permissions
Please provide the root password
Parola:
Installation successfull
--------------------------------------------------------------

But when I tried:

--------------------------------------------------------------
guest@porteus:/mnt/sdb5/SNX$ snx
snx: error while loading shared libraries: libpam.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
--------------------------------------------------------------

That's the point I stopped.

Is there anybody who can help me?

Many thanks
Balthasarian

Porteus (and slackware) doesn't use PAM so you may need to install this to get it to work.
How do i become super user?

PAM definition:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux_PAM

the package:

the libraries that are needed:

But maybe you will have to build it from source.
