Is there a way to delete for force expire a GP cookie?

L3 Networker

If I wanted to force testing the certificate and make sure the cookie wasn't being used to extend an old connection, 

is there a means of manually deleting the Global Protect cookie on a client machine?


To make sure the cookie is not being used I will take these steps on the client machine

- delete the PanPUAC_*.dat files (on my Windows machine these are in %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Palo Alto Networks\GlobalProtect\)

- restart the PanGPS service


IIRC, the PanPUAC file contains the GlobalProtect cookie, and I restart the PanGPS service to clear any cookies used by SAML.
