    Accepted Solution

    Add a rule to the checkpoint dashboard:

    Source = Clients IP address (*you may need to create an object for this host)
    Destination = Celesticx VPN Server IP Address (*you may need to create a object for this host)
    Service = L2TP
    Action = Allow
    Push the policy

    Install the VPN client on the local PC and login.
