If you're using a virtual Machine under virtual box and using the software cisco checkpoint VPN-
1 Secure Client NGX R60 to connect to your office vpn
1. First you need to setup your VM network connection as bridge connection.
2. If facing problem in the phase 1 of the vpn connection while defining your site you can do this. From another PC with good working VPN connection, export out the registry including subfolder
then shutdown the good vpn client services. After that copy the folder C:\Program files\CheckPoint\SecureRemote\database
Then , in the VM while shutting down the vpn client services register the reg that you copy from the good PC and also replace the original database folder in the VM
After that restart back the secureremote services. The site now exists for you to run.
