GlobalProtect behind proxy

GlobalProtect is using SSL and IPSec. Is GlobalProtect proxy aware? Ie. if GlobalProtect client is located on a network that dictates the use of a http/https proxy to get internet access?

there should be no issues behind a proxy.


GP client can detect and use IE’s proxy settings. If customer setup proxy through other browsers (e.g. Firefox), GP client won’t use it.

I have question about this topic.

How about MacOS?

Does it use proxy configuration from Safari or any other browser?

With a mac it seems to "work" but after a lot of attempt, without proxy no problem.. But on the same customer site changed the proxy with another proxy hasn't worked... Is a mix of condition i think.

I've fount a problem on connection behind a proxy from a windows machine, on osx ok. It seems will be fixed with the release 4.1.7 at the end of the month.
