Global protect split tunnel setup

L4 Transporter



I have 8.1.5 on the pa and 4.1.11-9 client


I have setup the gateway for video traffic exclusion, and selected 




But a simple test shows utube still come over the tunnel address


I want to allow MS Teams to by pass the tunnel, so I goto agent / client setting select my config and split tunnel 

domain and application 


but the app runs from 



how can i enter that into the config 


@SergGur Thanks a lot for your comments and your detailed explanations!

I am happy that so many people shared their personal experience in this thread, and I am deeply convinced that as a community we can work around some of the big challenges we are all facing at the moment. 


My post was just the starting point, when I was saying that the %variable% method works, I was meaning that it is possible to configure some tunneling exclusions based on applications with the %variable%. I tried it as well and it seemed like some of the MS Teams traffic was not tunneled anymore, so I assume the GP Client could recognize that some of the traffic was originated from this application. Nevertheless, I quickly started facing some issues with some of the MS Teams features (like online meetings for example). I agree with you when you say that this method does not work for MS Teams.

Have you tried this with some other applications as well?



After reading through a lot of this, are most of these posts basically saying that none of the mentioned solutions are foolproof, and consistently work?  

where do i check to see if i have subscription or not?


I still have the same problem video exclusion from split tunnel does not work

@rgunna2020 What application are you trying to optimize? Are you talking about the MS Teams?

Like what you see?
