GlobalProtect Portal konfig update on Windows

Is there a way to force an update of the GlobalProtect configuration on a windows agent?

I`m testing different configurations but the client would update the config, probably because of the "Config Refresh Interval (hours)"

Regards

Kristian

Hi Kristian,

You can refresh the config on the GP client by going to File --->rediscover network.

if you have the debug level under troubleshooting enable on the client for PanGp Service you will see the following event to verify if it refreshes the config or not

The global protect gatway settings would remain persistent on the windows client, until you disconnect and connect back to the gateway, or wait for the "config refresh interval"

I suggest deleting the GP PanPortalCfg.DAT file located (by default) at the following path. C:\Users\<Windows User>.

This will force the GP Windows Agent to download the Altered config from the Portal rather than using GP config from the Local cache,when a User attempts to connect back  to the Portal after disconnection.
