    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 -

    The project had a release this year, so hopefully the support matrix do is just out of date.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

    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.

    Grimkin gave a great solution, but actually I had already suggested it in the first reply to your question, and supplied within the link is a bit more information to help answer you question.
