Simultaneous connection of two GP portals

L0 Member


I am implementing two GP portals and it generated a question, is it possible to have a connection to two GP portals at the same time with the same user?


Thank you

From the same device ... no.

from different devices... yes.

So there's a sort of work around to this if you want to access both portals on the same device. 

  • You can run multiple virtual machines on the same device simply connected to the different portals without any issue whatsoever. 
  • If you are using a Windows device, you can utilize WSL and the GlobalProtect Linux agent (if licensed) to have your machine connected to two portals at the same time. This obviously depends heavily on what you're actually aiming to accomplish, but it's functional for some workflows.


As @Mick_Ball already mentioned, a GlobalProtect agent installation can only be active on one portal at a time; in addition, you can only have one agent installation on any given machine. Using WSL or VMs gets around this limitation and allows a single piece of physical equipment to connect to both.
