VPN portal migration to Cloud

L1 Bithead

Hi Team


We have a GP portal vpn.example.com which is hosted on a physical NGFW where we use SAML for authentication.

Now we want to move it to cloud, hence we have to generate a new SAML  for this portal IP with the FQDN vpn.example.com.

We want to use the same FQDN for GP portal on cloud. I am not sure about the IDP (SAML) side configuration but I believe they map the SAML file with FQDN/IP.

How do I proceed in this case if I want to test the new cloud GP portal setup because if I generate new SAML with this FQDN it will mess up my existing GP portal setup.

Please correct me if i am wrong.

You would need to look at your IDP and see how they actually handle the authentication on their side of things to see if the attempt coming from a new IP would actually matter. In some instances it would, but in others the IP that services the request has literally no bearing and its all handled via certificates.
