I use a checkpoint secure client to connect to client network. I wish to use command line mode to connect. The problem is that, we use smart cards, which requires pin.

At this moment, I am able to invoke checkpoint VPN from command line. But when i try to connect, pop-up for smart card pin appears.

Once I enter pin, connection is established successfully. If I disconnect and try to connect for the second time, pop-up for smart card does not appear. It seems that pin information is cached somewhere.

The problem is that I am trying to connect to VPN using batch file and I want to configure pin information somewhere or give the pin information as a argument to batch file. I am not able to find how to configure it.

By the way secure client that i use is "NGX R60 HFA03 (Build 011)". Kindly let me know, if you have any i search on how to proceed. Any small hint would be appreciable.

Wouldn't that kinda defeat the purpose of having a PIN in the first place? –  Shane Madden Dec 27 '11 at 16:24
I think Shane it would not. I am not trying to bypass pin validation. It is just that, instead of giving it through GUI pop-up, I am trying to give it through batch file. The batch file would ask user for the pin. –  user613114 Dec 28 '11 at 3:53
Can anybody help me in sorting out this issue? I have tried many ways, but not able to find any solution :( –  user613114 Dec 28 '11 at 15:26
