We are running Global Protect with pre-logon. The GP Portal needs to allow users to login from "clean" computers without machine certificates, and at the same time allow pre-logon user(and other users) to authenticate with machine certificate. This has in 5.0 been done by using a certificate profile with the username field set to "none".
This was working fine in 5.0, but after upgrading to 6.0 I get a "valid certificate is required" when accessing the GP portal page through a web-browser.
I found the following article describing change in default behavior from 4.1 to 5.0 due to implementation of pre-logon.
Has this been changed again in 6.0? How can I get a Global Protect Portal to support both user/password and machine certificate authentication in 6.0?
Thanks for your reply!
Are able to authenticate to the portal using bot username/password and computer/client certificate?
Or are you using just username/password for the portal? Read through the admin guide one more time, and it seems like I got it wrong, and that you donæt need a certificate profile on the portal for pre-logon after all. Is this correct?
"After authentication succeeds, the portal pushes the client configuration to the agent along with a
cookie that will be used for portal authentication to receive a configuration refresh. Then, when a client system
attempts to connect in pre-logon mode, it will use cookie to authenticate to the portal and receive its pre-logon
