Global Protect Authentication Profile

L2 Linker



I have setup Global protect and I want to use it with LDAP Authentication profile. It works fine however when in the auth profile I add a specific AD group so only users in the group allow to connect to VPN it doesn't work. Even sometime with specific group added others users can connect to the VPN or it doesn't allow anyone to connect. Already added the groups from User Identification tab and group mapping.


Through CLI I can see the member of the AD group.


Not sure if this requires a licence as I am doing this in a LAB and licence has expired.


Any advice on this please.

Have you tried adding the domain to the authentication profile?


.  it seems when i enter the user as domain\user the auth fails.

but with the domain added and modifier set to "%USERINPUT%"  in the auth profile, it works.


i have no idea why the vpn would work for non group members, perhaps they are using cached portal and authing to the gateway.


I personally use group membership in the portal agent tab and do not have any issues.

Hi MickBall
