GlobalProtect Portal HTTP redirect

GlobalProtect Portal HTTP redirect

Dear all,

We're currently testing the GP VPN solution before we roll it out to our notebooks. We noticed that we can only access the portal homepage if we explicitly enter "https://<portal-url>". It doesn't work with just "<portal-url>" there HTTP would be used.

Is there any way to activate an HTTP to HTTPS redirect for the GP portal?

We do not have an option to redirect the http page to https.

Sorry for refreshing this thread


There was such an option for PA 4.x


What is more - in 5.0.10 there is still some kind of information about this functionality

show global-protect-gateway gateway name GW1

GlobalProtect Gateway: GW1 (0 users)

Tunnel Type          : remote user tunnel

Tunnel Name          : GW1-N

        Tunnel ID                 : 1

        Tunnel Interface          : tunnel.51

        Encap Interface           : loopback.51

        Inheritance From          :

        Local Address             :

        SSL Server Port           : 443

        IPSec Encap               : yes

        Tunnel Negotiation        : ssl

        HTTP Redirect             : no

        UDP Port                  : 4501

        Max Users                 : 0

        IP Pool Ranges            : -;

        IP Pool index             : 0

        Next IP                   :

        DNS Servers               :


        WINS Servers              :


        DNS Suffix                :

        Access Routes             :;

        VSYS                      : vsys1 (id 1)

        SSL Server Cert           : Portal51

        Auth Profile              : SZP_LDAP

        Client Cert Profile       :

        Lifetime                  : 86400 seconds

        Idle Timeout              : 86400 seconds

So my question for now is:

- is this a limitation of the new version of GlobalProtect client?

- is this functionality again on the roadmap? its quite useful

Hi Team,

DO we have this feature on 5.0 and onwards.

I do see that the HTTP redirect is turned off in my current configuration.

Need to know how can we enable this option. I did not found any such option on CLI or GUI.

Please assist.
