GlobalProtect for Linux cannot connect to local gpd service

After installing the rpm (latest version as of today: 4.1.7, running on Fedora 28) the cli client cannot communicate with the service (although it is started):


$ systemctl status gpd
● gpd.service - GlobalProtect VPN client daemon
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/gpd.service; enabled; vendor preset: disabled)

$ globalprotect
Cannot connect to local gpd service.

Does anyone have an idea what's going on here before I open a support case?

I switched to the latest (head) version of OpenConnect which also supports PaloAlto portal and gateway connection (without the need to enable xauth).

@ctr_ts,

What if you try launching it with sudo?

@ctr_ts,

I'd probably chock this up to Fedora not being a supported Linux distrobution. Currently the only supported is CenOS 7, RHEL 7, Ubuntu 14.04 and later, Ubuntu 16, and Ubuntu 18 works but not officially.

Also getting this error on RHEL 7 btw
