security key like for cisco vpn client. There has to be a way for global protect to secure the connections

The first time you put in your password to connect, what keeps that from being clear text how is it encrypted. We have group name and password setup but that is no where on the client software that is installed on the pc

I hope its future of Global protect, check this configuration under 

Network->Gllbal protect->gateway->selcet gateway->agent->external gateway

check is it manuall or not?

GlobalProtect uses certificates to secure the connection, rather than a preshared key :)

so if you don't put on a cert then your connection is not secure

then the device's default certificates will be used ;)

you mean the portal configuration not the gateway configuration right?

We are using IPSec connections not ssl does that make a difference? My main concern is the first time then connect using the VPN that their password is encrypted and then does it download the key after the first connection
