The simplest way to deploy the GlobalProtect
app software is to download the new app installation package to
the firewall that is hosting your portal, and then activate the software
for download to the apps connecting to the portal. To do this automatically,
the firewall must have a service route that enables it to access
the Palo Alto Networks Update Server. If the firewall does not have
internet access, you can Download the GlobalProtect App Software Package for Hosting on the Portal software package
from the Palo Alto Networks Software Updates support
site using an internet-connected computer, and then manually upload
it to the firewall.
You define how the app software updates
are deployed in the portal agent configurations—whether they occur
automatically when the app connects to the portal, whether the user
is prompted to upgrade the app, or whether the end user can manually
check for and download a new app version. For details on creating
an agent configuration, see Define
