Under same path as previously mentioned, what DNS servers do you currently see when on VPN?

L2 Linker

There is your problem. Remove that from the settings and add your ISP DNS servers (preferred) ? or any global dns and try to access internet.

I have a customer having the same issue. 


I have installed the latest version of GlobalProtect I have available to me. (5.0.6-29)

I made sure there were no issues in Security & Privacy and the firewall is turned off. 

I have the debug log files if that helps in any way. 

OS X 10.14.2

Has anyone got a solution for this? I'm using macOS 10.15.5 and GP 5.1.1-12


I agree that the internet is not completely down but some routing issues. traceroute to works both with or without GP, except it is extremely slow with GP.


I even tried a Windows 10 VM on my mac (macOS 10.15.5) without changing any mac configuration. And it works perfectly fine.


I'm thinking it could be some compatibility issue between GP and macOS, but I'm not sure what to check next.

I am having the same experience.

When I connect to our VPN to begin with, it works as you'd expect.  When I map an SMB share, it's almost like the tunnel goes down.  I can't ping or connect to anything internal (where i'm VPN'd in), however, I can ping  When I disconnect from the VPN, everything continues normally.

We are using PAN-OS 9.1.2 and GP 5.1.4; MacOS 15.5
