Global Protect 4.0.2 -19 cannot connect to Portal

L2 Linker

Hello everybody,


we are facing a big problem regarding the GlobalProtect Client.

Problem is that some Users can connect via GlobalProtect but some can not.

Setting up a new User Profile fixes the Problem but that is not a solution.

We are struggeling to find the cause inside the User Profiles which causes this behavior. 

If any of you have a suggestion on how to fix this we are thankfull to hear it.


This is the GlobalProtect Log from one of the Users who cannot connect:

cant offer much help on this but have tagged for updates.


we do have this issue now and again but with over 4k of GP devices we only get 1, maybe 2 a year.

we just replace the imaged laptop with one from stock and re image.


our AD policies are very strict and perhaps this doesn't help.


i did try a few basic tests, can you reach the portal address via IE to prove this is not a winhttp issue. also you may want to just check to see if wireshark picks up any attempt whatsoever to contact the portal.


also... do you have any proxy settings that might prevent the connection.



cancel the proxy option,,, just seen it in logs.

What do you mean by "cancel the proxy option" ?

Our Proxy has an exception to let connections to our VPN through.

Even if we remove the proxy it still won't connect.


The weird thing is that if we setup a new User Profile (and delete the saved local Profile on that Notebook) it works. So I guess it must be the Profile.

And no, I cannot access our HTTPS Website of GlobalProtect. When I try to access it I have to confirm our Certificate and after that I get:

"This Website can't be displayed."


i meant cancel my comment regarding proxy.


have you tried to wireshark the connection, i would set capture option to  "port 53 or port 443 or (whatever your proxy port is)"

just to cut out the chaff.




I don't think this will help with the profile issue but will show exactly what is going on at connection attempt.


According to Wireshark:


- Resolves the DNS Name of the GP Server correctly

- Does the handshake successfully

- Gets the Certificate from the GP Server


But then it just stops...

it was a total of 8-10 packets, so not much at all.


I realized that with a working Profile I get a Certificate Warning (which I can confirm) that it wasn't signed by a public authority and may be not trustworthy. With the broken Profile I don't get such warning.

@husetech. Hi.


thanks for the update, I honestly cannot offer any more advice and pretty much done the same tests as you.


if you have time... could you confirm the following. just for future reference.


when the profile is broken, are you able to remove proxy settings and connect to another site via https or is it just your GP portal.






it is just the GP Portal indeed. At the moment you try to access it, Internet Explorer gives you Windows-Security Message.

In this message you have to confirm the Certificate (looks similar to the message you get when u connect vie GP with a working Profile). Once you press "OK", the message disappears followed by a "Can't reach Website" Window.


Thanks for the support so far. If anyone else has come accross this issue and knows a solution feel free to let me know.

Just trying to bumb the Thread to see if anyone came accross the same problem.

L0 Member

Pls try the below steps may this will resolve the issue 


1. Launch an elevated (admin) powershell window.

2. Enter the following command.

Stop-Service winmgmt -Force; winmgmt /resetrepository

3. Restart the computer you just reset the WMI repository on.
