Hello. i have been experiencing random GlobalProtect disconnects on my home computer. I'm running Windows 10  with GlobalProtect 5.0.8 64-bit connecting back to my office's Palo Alto firewall (not 100% sure of the version). A few times a day, GlobalProtect will just disconnect on its own. I am typically running a Remote Desktop Connection from my home PC to my work PC when this happens and the RD session will freeze and disconnect as well. I started collecting logs when this happens but dont really know how to parse them. I have noticed a few things in various logs.
How would you recommend troubleshooting these disconnects. I'm not familiar enough with the firewall side of things to know how to look at any logging on that side. Is the issue with my home computer/OS/hardware/network? or is it likely something in GlobalProtect and/or Palo Alto that needs attention?
-Firstly I would go for the info in the PanGPS log on the local device.and perhaps paste more info.
also check your PC event viewer - Applications and Service Logs->Microsoft->Windows->Wlan-Autoconfig. operational to see if wifi is playing up.
the palo alto system logs @ Monitor/system may suggest why this happened. i normally see a client disconnect message but at least you then know it's not a firewall issue.
Thank you for the suggestions. Soon after i entered the request, i got stuck at work for the last three weeks and couldn't use GlobalProtect from home at all so i never got around to trying your suggestions. I'm finally home for the weekend and will look for those logs you mentioned and will paste them here after my next disconnect.
I didnt find a solution yet. but now my whole company is using this product so i better find one really really soon. Hope to get some use out of it this weekend. I'll post back as soon as i have new info/
