Hi Albert,

I only remember to have seen this message if you have more than 1 IP address defined on the GlobalProtect Portal definition or if you have an internal IP address defined.

Or if you defined HIP profiles.

Also you cannot download/configure the GlobalProtect Data File Dynamic Update Schedule.

Can you check please?



Now there is no license error but the vpn-ssl does not connect.

I have only one portal with only one IP address and I have no Internal Gateway only an External Gateway. Also I have not HIP profiles.


If you have only 1 external IP, no HIP and no GlobalProtect Data File updates, you should not see the license warning I believe.

If still seen, please open a TAC case.


Regarding the gateway error connection.  You don't use NAT and if yes, not on a port different than 443?

Normally I would say to use the same IP for the Portal and Gateway definition, reachable on port 443.

Also make sure not to have any 'spaces' in the name of any of the GlobalProtect configurations.

If not working, please open a TAC case as well.

Might this issue have been yours?

  • 34469 – Incorrectly receiving the warning message “No valid GlobalProtect portal license” and “No valid GlobalProtect gateway license” when committing the configurations. Issue occurred when a translated SSL VPN was created by the 4.0 to 4.1 upgrade, so the portal/gateway configuration is valid and the errors should not be displayed.

If yes, please upgrade to v4.1.2 released last night.

We had this same issue.  We are staying away from 4.1.1 and 4.1.2 until further bugs get cleaned up.  Also, when we upgraded to 1.1.1 GlobalProtect client and software 4.1.2, GlobalProtect would get caught up "Connecting" and would not connect.  We have reverted to 4.0.5 and 1.0.5 and everything works the way that it should.

Up the case

Im with the same problem , my version is 4.1.6
