FireWall-1 FAQ: Logging to an NT Domain via Secure Client

Please note: This content was from when I was operating my FireWall-1 FAQ site, which I stopped operating in August 2005. For some reason people still have links to this stuff on the Internet that people are still clicking on.


I am making this information available again AS IS. Given how old this information is, it is likely wildly inaccurate. I have no plans to update this information.


If you're still running versions of Check Point VPN-1/FireWall-1 where this information is still relevant to you, do yourself a favor and upgrade to a more recent release. If you happen to be running a current release and the information is useful, it's by happenstance :)


Secure Client build 4153 and later have a feature called "Secure Domain Logon" that allows this to work. You must enable SDL in the "Passwords" menu of Secure Client, which requires administrative privileges on the local machine if you are running Windows NT.

In NG, you must be running the NG FP3 client or above for SDL to be supported in Connect Mode.
