Outlook and Global Protect

L0 Member

In the past when our users disconnected Global Protect, Outlook would disconnect immediately.


Seems like this no longer the case. When GP is disconnected Outlook continues to work.


I'm wondering if anyone has every eperience this before?

What exactly do you mean by 'continues to work'? I would expect Outlook to, fairly gracefully, realize that the user is now 'off-site' and switch over to public access fairly simply. Older versions of Outlook at a fairly hard time recognizing that they had moved off the internal network and didn't switch over gracefully, but they have for a while now perfectly fine. 

Continue to work Meaning....Shows as conencted.


Yes your right but some users have stated once their VPN was disconnected...the status switch to "Disconnected"


Wouldnt this be expected behavior espcially in cached mode? Or it would just switch over like @BPry suggested.

Speak with your outlook team. Our outlook is available without GP, along with Skype.
