Global Protect Smart Card Problems

L0 Member

hello 2 all,


is here someone who uses smart card with pin authentication on external gateways?


i've an interesting problem: gp-agent/client 6.2.1 panos 10.2.7-h3


i'm establishing an external ipsec-tunnel to headquarter with on-demand mode / conditional-connect authentication with personal smartcard and pin on gateway...


terminating vpn-tunnel with app works as designed, but if i remove the smart card from laptop slot, all my credentials are being deleted, so i've to reauthenticate with user/password on portal and gateway again, credentials are not beeing saved..


i've set retain-connection-on-smart-card-removal = no, but why does this setting clear all my credentials, sso...?
