Symptoms
  • High number of Visitor Mode users appear in CPView or in the output of the 'vpn show_tcpt' command.
  • The vpnd process is highly utilized.

Cause
Visitor Mode (IPSec over TCP port 443) causes a high performance impact on the Gateway as such connections are handled in user-mode.

Notes:
  • Check Point Mobile for Windows and Endpoint Security VPN client first tries to connect using NAT-T. If the Gateway is not reachable, it switches to Visitor Mode.
  • Visitor Mode is used when the Endpoint Security VPN client runs the New Site wizard.
