Global protect IP address

L4 Transporter

GlobalProtect gateway client configuration generated. User name: bozo, Private IP: 136.176.144.x, Client version: 4.0.0-90, Device name: clownmobile, Client OS version: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro , 64-bit, VPN type: Device Level VPN.


Why is the PA classifying the IP address given to the VPN session as private?

I don't think its a classification, more of a label...



Yes you are probably correct a label but an incorrect label, wouldn't this address be a public IP?

in a rfc thingy 242 chapter "B" subsection 8 then yes, but this is refering to the IP address allocated to your "Private side" of the tunnel.


perhaps "Allocated IP" would have been better....



"Given IP"

"Ended up with IP"

"lumbered with IP"



misleading IP
