In my blog, "GlobalProtect: Overview," I provided a synopsis of the GlobalProtect series and overall objectives, including a description of each article in this series. I would recommend starting there prior to moving forward.
In this post, I will cover the initial setup of GlobalProtect, which includes a portal, external gateway, and user authentication via local database. You can see a diagram of the environment here.
You should now be able to log into the portal, download and install the GlobalProtect App, and test connectivity.
In my next post, "GlobalProtect: Expanded Setup," we will make changes to the configuration to include different forms of authentication and add an internal gateway.
