Shared Drives conflict with Check Point VPN Client

Hello folks,

when searching for a failure to activate Shared Drives we noticed another strange combination on a business notebook: running a VPN client by “CheckPoint” enforces a “Security Policy” to be used, that seems to circumvent the built-in firewall exceptions for Port 445 connections between the Docker NAT and the PC. So, in order to get shared drives working this “Security Policy” needs to be deactivated. (See the Popup-Menu of the Tray Icon (a little Lock)).

Regards from Dortmund,

Thanks for sharing this. That CheckPoint VPN client has caused me many problems, not just with Docker.
