Globalprotect, unable to connect

L2 Linker

Hi, I am not a techy person but I have to install Globalprotect in order to work from home, the error I'm getting is: Connection failed: No network connectivity. Please verify your network connection and try again.


I'm not sure what the problem is. Please HELP. 


I did the PANGs restart, that didn't work either 


As for the troubleshooting logs, there's a long list, I'm not sure what should look at 

start at the top and do a search for part of your portal address,   in notepad,, edit find    potal.address


when you see a line with your address then just look below it to look for obvious errors.




May I ask tho, what is the main cause of this issue I'm having? Is there a problem with the laptop? 

well if others are working ok then i would have thought it was either the laptop on the GP installation.


if you post the address then I can test it.  i cant login but i can test that the address is correct.  when you have posted it, go back to edit your post and delete it, then only i will get it by email.


If you cant do this then not sure what else i can offer.

It's okay, I appreciate all your help. Tahnks so much! 

I had this problem - network is there but GP won't connect. Only way I could fix it was to install using local Administrator account on windows. Even though my user was an admin, I could not get it to work even with uninstall reinstall. After admin install log back in as user and supply credentials. 


Seems like a local security issue, but have not found the fix. This workaround is ok but not good in user support situations

More on this.

Where this is an issue is because we don’t give local administrator account access to users. So the admininstrator login doesn’t work for remote support. 


This workaround seems to solve the problem for the impacted remote user:

  • Uninstall the 5.1 client
  • Reactivate or otherwise deploy the 4.1 client and install - this does not have the dependency on local admin to set portal and credentials.
  • Re-activate the 5.1 client and allow it to auto-update when the user logs on to the firewall

The client is now open for the user to login and set the credentials.


Some questions still being researched:

  • Only Domain users?
  • Can another domain user log into the “fixed” machine and use their credentials to connect?

As the remote users are isolated mostly this is less a short term issue. As this just started affecting us it seems to be related to recent Win 10 updates. I had this happen on a new install and existing install, both pro and enterprise editions
