GPC-14824
Fixed an issue where, when the GlobalProtect app was installed on macOS devices, the GlobalProtect app tried to restore the gateway connection even when the device was on Modern Standby mode. The users were prompted to authenticate using multi-factor authentication (MFA) authentication.
GPC-14804
Fixed an issue where, when the GlobalProtect app was installed and configured with
Allow User to Disable GlobalProtect
to
Allow with Ticket
option, the app did not display the

link next to the
Ticket Number
field on the screen.
GPC-14792

Fixed an issue, where the GlobalProtect app users were prompted to re-enter the password when the connection was refreshed.This issue occurred only when the password contained non-English alphabets.
GPC-14492

GPC-14477
Fixed an issue where the GlobalProtect app did not detect real-time protection for SentinelOne Endpoint Security, which caused the device to fail the HIP check.
GPC-14453
Fixed an issue where the TCP Option lookup for IP fragmented TCP packets caused the endpoint to lose access to internal resources.
GPC-14405
Fixed an issue where, when the IPv6 Sinkhole feature was enabled to block the GlobalProtect app from accessing the local network devices using IPv6 address, the GlobalProtect gateway still allowed the GlobalProtect app to send IPV6 traffic to local network devices instead of blocking them.
GPC-14329
Fixed an issue where macOS devices were able to bypass the GlobalProtect tunnel using the physical adapter even when
No direct access to local network
was enabled.
GPC-14278
Fixed an issue where, when the GlobalProtect app was installed on macOS devices, the GlobalProtect HIP report displayed encryption status even when the encryption feature was disabled.

GPC-14010
Fixed an issue where, when the GlobalProtect app was installed on macOS devices, the HIP match logs were missing for some user profiles which caused the device to fail the HIP check.
GPC-14008
Fixed an issue where after a GlobalProtect connection was established, the network interface was detected as public instead of domain due to timer issue with Network Location Awareness (NLA).
GPC-13998
When connected to GlobalProtect with
Resolve All FQDNs Using DNS Servers Assigned by the Tunnel (Windows Only)
set to
Yes
in the App Configurations area of the GlobalProtect portal configuration, performance is slow in the Windows Active Directory Users and Computers console.
Workaround:
Set
Resolve All FQDNs Using DNS Servers Assigned by the Tunnel (Windows Only)
to
No
.
GPC-13986
Fixed an issue where the DNS UDP checksum was incorrectly calculated by GlobalProtect, causing slow connections when the user accessed internal applications using either the CLI or web browser.
GPC-13970
Fixed an issue where DNS queries for excluded domains were sent out on both the GlobalProtect app virtual adapter and the device's physical adapter with the
Split-Tunnel Option
set to
Both Network Traffic and DNS
in the App Configurations area of the GlobalProtect portal configuration.
GPC-13963
Fixed an issue where the DNS UDP checksum was incorrectly calculated, causing latency in the GlobalProtect connection.
GPC-13900
Fixed an issue where, when the
Resolve All FQDNs using DNS Servers Assigned by the Tunnel (Windows Only)
option was enabled in the App Configurations area of the GlobalProtect portal configuration, GlobalProtect generated a negative DNS response incorrectly using ‘SERVERFAIL’ as the error code, causing DNS resolution to fail and delays on application start-up on end points in a dual stack environment.
GPC-13857
Fixed an issue where, if GlobalProtect was configured for domain-based split tunneling and the domain name resolved to the loopback address (127.0.0.1), the GlobalProtect app would disconnect on devices running macOS 11.5 or later.
GPC-13819
Fixed an issue where, when the
Resolve All FQDNs using DNS Servers Assigned by the Tunnel (Windows Only)
option in the App Configurations area of the GlobalProtect portal configuration was enabled, the GlobalProtect pre-logon process took more than 2 minutes to complete when the user tried to log on to the Windows operating system after a reboot.
GPC-13801
Fixed an issue where, after an upgrade, GlobalProtect generated a negative DNS response incorrectly using error code 'SERVERFAIL', which caused Kerberos authentication to fail.
GPC-13774
Fixed an issue where the GlobalProtect tunnel could not send traffic after the system woke up from sleep mode.
GPC-13725
Fixed an issue where, during a transparent upgrade of the GlobalProtect app, the system rebooted or woke up from hibernation, which caused the upgrade to fail due to competing resources between the system reboot and transparent upgrade.
