VPN with Windows Phone



I have been researching for information about how to configure Windows Phone with Paloalto. I did not find anything.


Has someone found any working method for this?


Thank you,

Hi Alex, welcome to community forums.


There is an article in the knowledge base that shows how to configure Global Protect, and it notes: "To authenticate devices with a third-party VPN application, check "Enable X-Auth Support" in the gateway's Client Configuration. Group Name and password must be configured for this setting."


While I have not tested Windows phone personally, I would try with built-in client or with something from the app market if built-in client does not work. Try to configure it and let us know if it doesn't work what are errors you are receiving.


Best regards,

Hello Luciano,


The problem is that Windows phone does not support Group Authentification(xauth). I have been looking also in the market but there is not android or iphone like rich app market.


Thank you for your answer,
