Global Protect Silent App Deployment

L1 Bithead

Hi Guys,


I have implemented global protect with pre-logon with device certs. It is working as expected. I have customized GP msi to add the portal name and to install silently. However it looks like users need to add their username/password for the first time and after that users don't need to enter the credentials again. Is there anyway to automate the process of end user has to manually enter username and password and global protect app to connect automatically?

without the GlobalProtect app it is not possible, you can use Clientless VPN for certain internal Apps to be accessible through the browser.

@Abdul-Fattah I'm using global protect App as mentioned and want to see if there is anyway to deploy the App without user requiring to manually input username and password.

if your GP-APP configuration on the firewall set to "User-Logon (Always On)" and Authentication Config to "save user credentials", the user should be directly connected to the Gateway after Windows-login.

but here the user should be logged in before with Username&password/certificate....
First-Ever GP-Login is Important because then the GP-App download the configuration from the Portal.
