GlobalProtect Welcome Page Frequency?

Hello...  When useing the GlobalProtect Welcome Page I've noticed it is only displayed on the client when they first connect, I assume once a day.  Is their a way to either force it to display every time a connection is made, or to make the PA think it's the first time someone has attached?  Thank you.

Here is the answer

 

From PAN-OS 7.0.x onward welcome page will be provided every time.

 

"The GlobalProtect client configuration now includes a setting to force the Welcome Page to display each time a user initiates a connection. This prevents the user from dismissing important information such as terms and conditions that may be required by your organization to maintain compliance. Alternatively you can provide the user the ability to dismiss seeing the Welcome page at subsequent logins. "

Thanks for the reply.  I worked with that setting and it basically just adds and removes a checkbox on the client which keeps the welcome page from displaying.  It does not actually make it so the page will display every time.  This is with PAN-OS 7.0.3 and GP client 2.3.1.

Take a new fresh laptop and try to connect.

It works the first time, but subsequent connections do not show the welcome page.
