GlobalProtect OnDemand mode

GlobalProtect OnDemand mode


We use PAN OS 4.1.1 and GlobalProtect 1.1.0, free version of GlobalProtect.

We have configured GlobalProtect in OnDemand mode.

When the GlobalProtect software starts it connects to the PA and try's to logon with the stored credentials (Username / password), i does this withoud giving a connect command.

We do not want this because ervery time i start my computer my account information is send to the internet.

We prefer a client that only starts when i start it.

Also the account iformation is storded by the PANGP agent and easy to reveal with an astrix remover.

I read that a lot of customers want the netconnect client back, we are also one of them

I hope for a quick solution.

Kind regards.

Good question, I also would like to use it in such way.

Not applicable

yeah we are facing this problem as well.

what is the point of calling it on demand when the service automatically connects everytime we boot up the system.
