Exclude all Zoom traffic from GlobalProtect VPN

L3 Networker

We have been trying to exclude all Zoom-related traffic from the GlobalProtect VPN tunnel.


So far we have tried with: "*.zoom.us" exclusion configured directly on the GP gateway as a domain in:

Network --> GlobalProtect --> Gateways --> GW NAME --> Agent --> CLient Settings --> Split tunnel --> Domain and Application


But this seems to not completely do the trick as Zoom use some AWS default domains, not under *.zoom.us.


What approaches will work that does not involve having to manually exclude all the IP ranges as defined here?



The Zoom binary path seems to be this one, but I'm not sure PA supports wildcards on the path like this:




Hi just curious how you created the address group.

I'll tried in on PAN-OS 9.1x (Panorama and firewalls) and got a validation error, when I tried to push the changes to the firewall.

Which PAN-OS and GP versions are you using?

Facing the same issue.


However, just 'allow listing' zoom.us and zoom.com along with /Applications/zoom.us.app/Contents/MacOS/zoom.us for MAC work. It's sad that I can't use the predefined application for video-conferencing to exclude in the spit-tunnelling.
