Global Protect Pre-Log on set up issues

L0 Member

Hi all,

We are attempting to test global protect with pre-log on in our network and have a number of issues and I was wondering if we might be setting it up incorrectly.

The type of set up we require is with windows machines that log on to global protect when they start up prior to users logging on.

Now there is nothing in the offical admin guide with regards to setting this up and I am relying on information on the web in Palo docs and you tube.

We dont seem to be able to get this working with a single gateway and a you tube video I saw suggests having one gateway for machines and one for users. Would this be a correct way to do this?

When we do it with a single gateway even though the certifcates are in place we get an issue when tryng to connect the global protect client saying 'invalid portal' this is doing the set up as per palo alto docs on their website.

Can anyone advise a correct implementation for this set up?

I know you've already alluded to it, but the KBs really do a very detailed job on describing what to configure and where.  I used this guide and it helped me get everything set up I needed:
