Global Protect before login

This may have been posted before but I am not finding the answer with my searches.  I have a single Global Protect Gateway setup with a split tunnel configuration.  I found a tech note for how to setup both a split and full tunnel on the same gateway but I was wondering if we could force the client computer to connect prior to the windows login screen in the full tunnel.  I want the network credentials for the local computer to not be cached for off-site computers.  I can't seem to find an answer to that.  I thought I did this years ago with a different product but I would not swear to it right now.  Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for reading,

Hi Todd.Johnsen ,

Answer you are looking for is pre-login. It allows vpn tunnel setup before user logs in to the machine.

You can refer to pre-login on following document :

GlobalProtect Administrator's Guide 6.0 (English)

Hope this helps. Thank you.
