Global Protect Connected but no internet connectivity

Hi All,

We have recently configurated a Global Protect VPN in our environment.

 

As we extended it to more people we started facing few issues:

1. Not able to join zoom meetings.

2. outlook shows disconnected

3. Can not sign-in into skype

4. Suddenly internet connectivity drops and have to reboot the machine.

 

We are running global protect on PA- 850 (8.1.11) and Global Protec Client 5.0.8-4

 

We are making use of "Pre-log on on-demand" connection method.

 

Has any one of you faced same kind of issues?

so do you mean to say that zoom and outlook were for sometime and then gets disconnected or it never gets connected at all?

Are you using split tunnel?

What does traffic  log shows for connection to outlook and zoom and Skype?

Does other internet website works fine without issues?

Zoom and outlook have intermittent connectivity. 
It works for some time and shows disconnected, iser have to refresh the connection or reconnect to make it work. 

zoom calls keeps on spinning. 

yes, we are making use of Split tunnel. 
We are excluding “*.zoom.us” but still UDP-8801 traffic can be seen in the firewall logs. 

traffic logs, route tables, everything looks fine as per the TAC. 

even though GP shows connected, some times user also loose internet connecivity, can not open any website (internal and external), can not resolve DNS, can not ping 8.8.8.8. 

i want to ask one question, what if system has 2 VPN solutions, Cisco Any Connect and Global Protect, does this creates an issue, TAC said if 2 solutions are running on system, it may create an issue. (But i am not convinced with statement)

Yes you can have two VPN solutions on the Laptop.

You can only use one at a time to avoid any issues.

 

Depending on your requirement you can switch between the two.

As you are working with TAC then he should fix your issue if not you can escalate to next level.

I can only guess here as i do not know your PA configuration and Network Topology.

There can always be an issue if there are 2 VPN clients installed on the machine at the same time due to the way that they have to create their own virtual interfaces,  That doesn't always mean that this will cause an issue. 

Now, if you are trying to USE both VPN solutions at the same time.. that will almost guarantee to be an issue.  

As long as you are not using BOTH at the same time.. then it SHOULDN'T cause an issue.. 

 

Just wanted to let everyone else know that if they are having any GlobalProtect issues, and need to troubleshoot the issue, our Very own @kiwi has written a great blog all about troubleshooting GlobalProtect.

Be sure to check it out here:

I do hope that TAC can help resolve your issue though.
