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/

http://www.fw-1.de/aerasec/ng/vpn-racoon/CP-VPN1-NG-Linux-racoon.html#support-matrix

The project had a release this year, so hopefully the support matrix do is just out of date.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

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.
