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.

as a quick test, open a web browser and https://   to the portal address.

I'm sorry, I don't get it. So I open a browser say, Google? And then what do I do next? 

Have you installed the GP client yet?

Yes, I did. I am on the step where the address must be entered on GP in order to access my work logins. And that's where I'm getting the error I initially mentioned. All my teammates were able to connect but all I'm getting is connection failed. 

ok so yes open a browser to perhaps google.


in the address bar at the top of the page , it will probably say or similar...


change this to https://your-portal-addree

Well, initially we all had the portal with https:// from the beginning and it wasn't working for all of us. But when someone tried to just use the portal itself, w/o https, it worked for everyone except mine. I'm thinking if this has something to do with my laptop? 

you do not need https:// when you put it into globalprotect.  but you need to add it when you test with a browser.


on your start menu type "command"


click on command prompt,,,


and type 

ping  your portal address.   


see what happens...

I tried it. I did enter on the command prompt the portal and it said it is not recognized as an internal or external command... 

I re entered 


ping portal address 

And it said: ping request could not find host
