What to look for in GP logs: certificate auth

L3 Networker

I am having some users who experience Connection Failed for the certificate auth Global Protect session.

What are the top 4 or 5 things I should look for in Global Protect debug logs to pin down what's 

behind this message?




On the back PAN side I am observing these steps in Monitor/Global Protect Logging for a good login:


Portal Pre-Login

Portal Auth   (Cert)

Portal Get Config GP_CLient Prelogin Machine Cert

Gateway Prelogin

Gateway Auth (sometimes cookie)

Gateway Register

Gateway Get Config (Client-Config – IP assigned)

Gateway Setup SSL

Gateway Connected

Gateway tunnel latency

Gateway hip check
