GlobalProtect v5.1.1 remembering wifi network, not allowing new wifi

L0 Member

Have rolled out GlobalProtect v5.1.1 and successfully connected from one remote location on the wifi network at that location.

When I move a new remote location with a different wifi, the laptop is connected to wifi I can browse the Internet, but GlobalProtect will not connect and says that it cant find xxxxxxx network.   xxxxxx represents the name of the wifi network I was connected to a previous location.


It seems as though GP is caching the wifi network name and not using any new wifi I may be actively connected to.  I had to uninstall GP client while at new location and re-install to get it to find the new wifi network


Anyone else seen this?  Is there a setting somewhere to correct this?

Unless you absolutely need 5.1, I would be sticking with 5.0.6. 5.1 is still early in its release cycle and I've found plenty of odd bugs with it. If you absolutely need 5.1, reach out to TAC and open a case on it.
