New Global Protect 3.0 is not good enough

L2 Linker

I was looking forwad to the 'new and improved' Global Protect. 


I am still very dissapointed at how it works from a UI standpoint. 


When I am connected to the VPN how do I disconnect? Is there a button hiding around in this awful GUI? The only way I know of is to go to the task bar and do it from there. Can anyone please let me know of another way?


Why Am I able to resize the GUI so it's smaller than the minimal size required? It's not a deal breaker but really just signs of shoddy programming. 





The user's need 1 button - Connect. 


Once the VPN is connected change the button to Disconnect. 


I wish you would hurry up and design it so it's something like Anyconnect:





Here's my post from last year wondering about the same problems, I was hoping that PA engineers were listening but I'm still waiting for a Global Protect application that's as equal quality to the rest of the PA platform.





Completely agree with that. It doesnt look like Palo Alto is all that concerned with fixing it however.

If you have on-demand connect method with GlobalProtect and have encountered issues with the app not being resillient , for e.g. 


1. Does not detect VPN disconnects fast enough and continue to think its connected 

2. Drops connection when there is temproray network glitches 


then please unicast me or reach out to your palo alto networks account team or support so that we can better understand the concerns/requirements to evaluate future enhancements.
