Linux GP client

Re: Linux GP client

Looks like this was impacted by the same issue as the windows client where it would not accept passwords with < and/or > in them. After swapping those characters out the connection is established without any issues.


What did we learn:

* there is a password length limit in the 4.1 client

* The 4.1 client will not connect if you have a < or > in your password

* The OSX 4.1 client *does* work with

* The Linux client suffers from the same character issue as the Windows client

* I do not know if the Linux client suffers from the password length issue reported by someone else in the Windows client post.

Re: Linux GP client

I have another query with new Global Protect client for linux.


Currently we are using VPNC StrongSwan for VPN to our network and we have enabled X-auth, group name and password.


Once we move to Globla Protect client for linux, can we remove X-auth, group name and password? I assume these configuration will be ignored.


Thanks in advance.

@RbadigerCY ,

That would be correct; the GlobalProtect agent for Linux doesn't require X-Auth to be configured. If they were the only clients utilizing X-Auth you should be good to completely remove this configuration once you've moved everything to the actual GlobalProtect agent.
