Gateway WAN-IP Could not connect to the gateway. Please contact your IT adm

Hi community,

I recently got a problem but I can't find the cause of it. In GlobalProtect the following error message was displayed:
WAN-IP gateway Could not connect to the gateway. Please contact your IT administrator.

It's normal now, but what could have happened?

In this case, WAN-IP is the Name of the Gateway that the GP Client was trying to connect to.

 

There can be problems when there is a proxy on the local (GP Client) network.

 

If others were having the same issue at the same time, that would indicate the Gateway was unreachable (maybe ISP down, a bad security policy dropping TCP 443/UDP 4501 connections to the Gateway, etc.)

Like what you see?
