GlobalProtect Gateway Portal and IP via DHCP Public IP

Hi All,

 

I have a question. Can we deploy a GlobalProtect (Gateway and Portal) on Strata Firewall via DHCP Public IP? I am familiar with configuration via public static IP. But on dynamic public IP, what if the ISP Leased you a brand new IP? What will be the behavior of it on the Strata firewall and the end users?

Best Regards,

Victor

Hi Victor,

Yes, GlobalProtect Portal and Gateway can be hosted with a DHCP IP. When configuring the Portal and Gateway, please leave the IP address field none.

Then, you can bind the Public facing DHCP interface to a DDNS provider, so if the IP changes on the DHCP interface the DDNS is updated for the FQDN of the Portal and Gateway. Below you will see the DDNS config example from my home firewall

 The DDNS feature will require minimum PanOS 9.0 to be installed on the firewall. 
 

Let me know if that helps

Thanks and stay safe,
Saad
