You have to install this package manually, due to linking restrictions. Either copy that you downloaded from Upstream to where PKGBUILD is located or link to it via

ln -s ~/Download/ ~/.cache/yay/snx

then cd into ~/.cache/yay/snx and run

makepkg -si 
to install it.

Assuming you're using yay.

Hi @skinnyskinner, Sorry for the late answer.

There wasn't any update of this package since 2022-03-29, the package on my system is built with the 800010003 release (download link is provided in the PKGBUILD) and I still use it on a daily basis.

I've not been notified at work about a new binary release and I've been looking into it without success. It'd be nice if you could tell when you estimate the last big update you're referring and what binary release you used.

Hi, I am not sure since when, i estimate since the last big update, i can't use snx anymore. The current error I get is.

13064:error:14077410:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert handshake failure:s23_clnt.c:757

Is there an issue with the dependencies or the snx package itself, or am I the only one with this issue?

I am using pamac, and then I needed to copy the file to /var/tmp/pamac-build-<user>/snx/.

Correction (and simplification) of pinned comment:

After downloading the shell script from Checkpoint ("Upstream URL") to your Downloads folder, run:

ln -s ~/Downloads/ ~/.cache/yay/snx

and then re-run:

@hcjl you're welcome, I've been using it for two years now and still have to use it on a daily basis so it's in my best interest that this package stays maintained.

I should be alerted at work when a new update is available.

Here is how I installed it:

1 - yay -S snx # (will fail)
2 - download from upstream url
3 - move into ~/.cache/yay/snx
4 - yay -S snx # (will work)

Hi. At first: Thank you very much for providing this package! I faced the same problem as described in the following StackOverflow post:

Is it possible that because of the updated packages he mention SNX lead to this problem? If this is the case, is there any change (also possibly from my side) to fix this problem? Or is there any new release from Check Point and this package could be updated? Unfortunately I cannot find the corresponding download on their site - only when I use the link you provide.
