Global Protect: Two preferred NIC listed

L0 Member

Windows 7 laptops with global protect client installed.


When I plug my laptop into a wired(ethernet) connection, the wireless IP and the wired IP are showing up as preferred. If I remove global protect from these laptops the wireless IP goes away when I am on wired.


We are starting to field help desk calls about slowness to all network resources from laptops with GP installed. I am sure some a-symmertical routing is going on here. 


Below is snippit from GP client. Any ideas? Should I upgrade GP to my clients and test again?


GP client is 3.14 and PAN-OS is 7.17

Below the snip from my PANGP Virtual Ethernet Adapter and its MAC address:




I don't think GP is causing the issues as what l can see now you do have a 2 NICs configured (one is wireless adaptor and another is LAN) on your laptop with  2 different default gateways as well as first nic received a config from the DHCP  where the second one configured statically. Don't know how your connection is working when you got 2 default gateways setup on the different subnets. Your Windows machine must complain about this.


Asymmetric routing from laptop l think you could try to run traceroute to the same destination a couple of time and see the first couple hops. But this is just more fyi and not relevant to your issue.
