GlobalProtect idle timeout

L0 Member

Hello all,


I would like to know your feedback with some requirements which I have to configure a GlobalProtect VPN to be used by mobile devices:


1- Split tunneling: Configured and working properly, mobile devices using this VPN are sending through the VPN only the traffic of some specific subnets.


2- Specific addressing based on SO: I’ve also deployed this feature successfully.


3- APP/FQDN based VPN: The VPN is only connected if the user tries to use or open an specific APP or URL. This has also been deployed successfully thanks to our MDM.


4- Automatic disconnection if the user has not sent traffic through the VPN after 20 minutes: Here I’m stuck…. the idle timeout should help me with this requirement, but never reaches…. GlobalProtect provides a DNS server which is behind the VPN. Because Split DNS is not a valid feature under iOS and Android… once the VPN comes UP all DNS queries goes through the VPN….


So I would appreciate if you could provide me some help with the point number 4….Probably I should use another approach because on this case split dns is not an option, I’m open to new approaches.


Thanks in advance!!!
