Hi,

Globalprotect and/or the built in VPN client of Google Android devices (can also be used) VPN add-on would be great.

What info you you need?

Currently I have to initiate the VPN manually before starting the RDP connection, it would be great if you guys could support this VPN technology in the same integrated way you do many other VPN techs.

If I can offer more info or test any effort you guys put in I'd be a very willing guinea pig.

Could you verify if they have a command line that we could call?

Hello David,

I realy would like that to. I don't know if they have a command line that you can call. If you want I can provide you the client.

You can PM me.

Hi.
I would like to add to the previous. This addon will be nice to have.

Hello,

Devolutions says that they cannot manage the VPN client.

I've requested the CLI feature at Palo Alto.

Palo says they update their VPN client twice a year.

I will send you an update when there is any news.

I just received an e-mail. It looks like they are not going to build this because there are not many people who ask for this.

I suggest that more people are send this feature request. You can do that here: support@paloaltonetworks.com

Clock5 yrs

Perhaps it's time to check for another VPN?

I just sent them an email explaining our situation.


Unfortunately we cannot migrate from GlobalProtect as it is a client's choice.

Clock5 yrs

We are in same position. Based on clients decision we also must use Global Protect. And from next week another client also migrate from OpenVPn to GlobalProtect. upset

Hi Guys,

I just had a call from a guy from Palo Alto Networks.

He says that if we can get him an exact specification for the requirement of the CLI, he will append it to the FR and hopefully it may get dealt with.

David - could you provide me with this specification to email him with?

Cheers

Hi Will,
I need you for this. Usually we need a /Connect and /Disconnect with some other parameters. For example if it's possible to specify a profile or an host, it's really nice to have that in the command line as well. However I don't know the details for this specific VPN.

For example it could be something like this

vpn.exe /Connect "myprofile"

Hello Dries Verbruggen,

Could you have any feedbacks fot this case ? Do you have any mails from Palo Alto Nw

Clock3 yrs

We got answered that there is an existing feature request for multiple profiles in the GlobalProtect client, they added us to the existing feature request.

Since this is not excactly what we need, I asked them in return to add to the case that we would like to be able to choose which profile to use with a command line switch. I gave as example "PanGP.exe /connect /profile:myprofile1"

But I had no response on this any more since august 2015

Clock3 yrs

Is there any updates for this case ?

Clock3 yrs

Nothing new from our side.

Regards

Hi,

Just going to bump this thread up - I wrote some third party automation behind Global Protect (saving/switching profiles, command line arguments). Whilst we can't force the client to connect through any methods, you can at least load/switch profiles using the CLI now with my utility. I've some some ideas for how I can make it automatically connect, but I need to have the time to do some testing for that.

Have a read here:
