Having to reboot Mac to access VPN

L0 Member

We are seeing a rash of Macs users that have to reboot their machines to get Global Protect to function after it just stops working. in the logs I am seeing lots of repeating messages such as this

re starting the network connection does not relieve the issue and neither does refresh connection or a killall GlobalProtect.

found the same issue, while a restart does resolve the issue - this effectively restarts the PanGPS process, if you kill this process (pid 1933 in the original post), the process will re-spawn and negotiate the gateway connection.  Even for the gateway that was in the prior error state.  Verified this will a log capture of PanGPS.log for killing process ID 23047

 

p.s. Prior attempts for resolution involved turning off IPv6 for the "Wi Fi" (e.g. whatever you're using as eth0), but since that change of configuration does not exist the loop condition for the PanGPS process, a restart was also used - it is unclear if this remediated the issue moving forward.
