Cisco VPN client windows supported by palo alto ?

Not applicable


Can the Cisco IPSEC VPN Client (running on a laptop Windows 7 64 bits) be supported by Palo Alto?

I know it's possible to connect an IPAD/Iphone with the CISCO VPN Client, but is is also possible with a laptop ?

When I try it on a laptop Windows 7 64 bits, the connexion is OK, however once I am conected, I get a default route while I should get static routes. Primarily, I configured 2 static routes under the Global Protect profile. I tried the same VPN profile on an Iphone, the connexion was OK and so did the routes.

The Cisco VPN client is not supported. If you can get it to work I am sure there are many users that would be interested to know what config you used.

It is possible that IPSEC clients with the XAUTH feature could work, but it is not tested or supported at this time for Windows, Linux or Mac-OS.

Our testing with iOS here in the TAC lab has demonstrated that the iPad or iPhone (iOS 4.x) did not install the any routes other than the default route to the tunnel when connected.

What version of iOS are you using on your iPhone?



Happy new year!

The version of the iPhone is 4.3.3.

It is simply about a problem of routes because when I add routes manually on my laptop it works

Has anyone found a work around or way to make Cisco VPN client work?
