After updating GP to version 2.1.0 I get the message "Server certificate verification failed" when trying to connect.
The same connection with GP version 2.0.4 works fine. The reason for updating is OSX 10.10 Yosemite.
I can't see any errors on the box or the client.
Does anybody have an idea?
Box is a PA-2050 running PanOS 5.0.12
The certificate is issued by RapidSSL and valid.
GPC behavior is changed in 2.1.0. Where gateway certificate is also checked for CN name validation.
As suggested earlier, make sure Gateway cert CN name matches with Gateway configured on Portal.
Lets say Portal says Gateway should be "FQDN HERE". Than CN name "FQDN HERE" should be reflected in certificate.
Bottom line is both has to be a FQDN or IP address.
Please make sure you have complete certificate chain in the certificates. Add the trusted root certificate in the 'Trusted root certificate column' of the portal. Most importantly, as I have seen in other cases, please check if the portal/gateway certificate has common name as IP or FQDN. You must match the same in the Portal Config>Client Configuration>Gateways>External gateways>Address. Also when the user connects, they must use the same IP/FQDN in the portal address field.
Let us know how it works.
