GlobalProtect + Mac

L0 Member



I have macos monteray 12.2.1 and GlobalProtect 5.2.6-87


All the traffic is not going in to the tunnel. Some still goes on the normal network outside of the VPN. Is there any setting in systems settings on the Mac that I have to allow for the software to route all the traffic?

Hi @mistermat ,


What do you have configured under Network > GlobalProtect > Gateways > [edit gateway] > Agent > Client Settings > [edit client] > Split Tunnel?

Hello Tom.

Thank you for your time. Much appreciated.

My system settings > network >

here is a list in the left white box and it’s only

wifi - connected
USB 100/1000 LAN not connected
Thunderbolt - Not connected

Here is the problem, there should be a GlobalProtect there as well to represent the VPN.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program again but with the same result. It feels like the version 5.2.6-87 fail to install all the components but there are no errors.

No security popups from the Macos and the tunnel connects fine in the GlobalProtect app when I hit connect. But the macos does not route the packets through the tunnel.
