hi,

It depends how you want to do this:

a) Use the SecureClient Packaging tool to create as custom installer for your needs and distribute this e.g. via group policy or:

b) create the site on another machine and use the userc.C file which is generated in:

C:\Program Files\CheckPoint\SecuRemote\database and
C:\Program Files\CheckPoint\SecuRemote\database\backup

You would need to write a script which would stop the Checkpoint SecureClient services, copy in (overwrite) the current userc.C file to the directories above and restart the services.

This may not be what you're looking for but it is something you could put into a windows domain logon.bat file, for example.

Let me know if you need any further information,

In short yes it does.  But that is just a manual way of doing what grimkin suggests above in a script (which is what you initially asked for. :P)

For this to work though, the secure client application needs to be restarted to allow it to load up the new userc.c file (and thus the new site)

Remember you need to stop the checkpoint services before you copy in the userc.C file (into BOTH directories) or  else they will be overwritten with the original.
