auto (pre)logon unconfigured installations

L0 Member

Hi everybody,


I use pre-logon (always on) for our users which works pretty well. One of the goals is to prohibit Internet access without VPN.

Now consider the following situation: People receive a freshly installed notebook (Windows). The GlobalProtect client is installed but it was never configured. In fact, no user logged into Windows so far as the process is automated a lot (thankfully).

How do I get the GP client to connect to the firewall without any user login in order to apply the "Enforce GlobalProtect Connection for Network Access" policy?

we are currently testing imaged devices that connect via pre-logon when posted to users home address...   but prior to all this and to date, we use a proxy.pac file that is auto read by browser. it tries to do a reverse lookup internally and if succeeds then proxy is set to "direct" (no proxy), if the internal host is not detected then it adds a false proxy of , which prevents any browsing.

also in the pac file is an exception to allow connections to our portals and gateways, this works well and also good for iPads.
