Mac Built-in Firewall Issue GlobalProtect

L0 Member

Hello everyone,


Yesterday I suddenly started experiencing the issue where I connect to GlobalProtect, and then gives an error asking to "Ensure your firewall is on" and to "Ensure your Apple Software Update is installed/enabled". Obviously, I wouldn't write this post if my firewall was off or the software was not updated. All the settings are the same as the day when everything worked fine. I would appreciate it if someone can show me the right direction to fix this.


Here's the data:

MacOS Big Sur 11.5.2

Global Protect version: 5.2.8-23
