You can try openswan in aggressive mode

If you have an SSL extender you can use SNX which is provided by Check Point

Checkout racoon - http://ipsec-tools.sourceforge.net/

The project had a release this year, so hopefully the support matrix do is just out of date.

Worth a shot.

If SNX is enabled on your gateway then the best option is to use the command line snx cient for linux - you can find it here:

https://supportcenter.checkpoint.com/supportcenter/portal/role/supportcenterUser/page/default.psml/media-type/html?action=portlets.DCFileAction&eventSubmit_doGetdcdetails=&fileid=10656

This supports gateways versions R70 and later - you can get an earlier one for R65 but you should be aware that R65 has gone end-of life and is no longer supported.
