GlobalProtect IPSec configuration

L1 Bithead

We have been using GlobalProtect for awhile but I just became aware that none of our clients are connected using IPSec even though the option is checked.


I can't see anything being blocked so I am wondering if it is a configuration issue of some kind.  


Note: we are using loopback interfaces and both the gateway and portal use the same loopback

well...I added a 2nd ip to external interface, created new tunnel, security zone, gateway, portal, added new security policy and altered the local host file on my laptop and was able to connect using IPSec.


at least I know it is a firewall issue and not a client side issue.


now to see if I can get it to work using loopback interface.

Talked to PAN tech support and they weren't able to get ipsec to work with the loopback set up. still looking into it.


in the meantime, I have looked at various documents on setting up GP but none of them had info on any policies needed to allow traffic.


What traffic needs to be allowed? I don't want to anything that could lead to security issues if it is on the external interface.


Keep in mind, I created a security zone for VPN. not sure if that changes things.

Are you NATing your client IP?  NAT is not supported to the IPSEC GlobalProtect Gateway.
