GlobalProtect Gateway on Different IP address

Let's say we  have an external facing interface  Ethernet1/3  with  Ip address of   The upstream isp router is all other addresses ( are routed to the Palo Alto and in use for various web services, etc..

Per the documentation I can find it looks like you have to set the Global Protect gateway IP address to the address you have set on the interface.   Is there a way to use one of the other addresses in the range we have assigned?  e.g.

mdl: PA-2050

Pan-OS 6.0.4

You can configure that IP address as /32 i.e. on that interface and then should be able to use it for GP.

You can also terminate the gateway on loopback,, configure any IP address on loopback and NAT to that IP address.

Hope it helps !

Hi Travisj,

Global Protect has to be configured on specific interface and its IP address.

Hence you can not terminate GP on Untrust interface with

As above suggested only way is to create loopback interface with, put it in untrust interface[depends on requirement]. And terminate GP on it.

Hello Travisj,

You can create a loopback IP with that address and NAT that IP address so that the request actually goes to PAN GP on the interface IP You can also NAT it using a port, you may refer to this document for the steps:

Can GlobalProtect Portal Page be Configured to be Accessed on any Port?

Re: GlobalProtect Gateway on Different IP address

thanks.  dreputi that's exactly what I needed, the issue I was facing was that I already had something on 443 of the interfaces IP address.  I didn't even consider nat'ing different port to a loopback deal.
