Authentication Cookie Usage Restrictions
Disable Automatic Restoration of SSL VPN
Enable this option to prevent automatic restoration of SSL VPN tunnels.
If you enable this option, GlobalProtect will not support Resilient VPN.
Restrict Authentication Cookie Usage (for Automatic Restoration of VPN tunnel or Authentication Override) to
Enable this option to restrict authentication cookie usage based on one of the following conditions:
  • The original Source IP for which the authentication cookie was issued—Restricts authentication cookie usage to endpoints with the same public source IP address of the endpoint to which the cookie was originally issued.
  • The original Source IP network range—Restricts authentication cookie usage to endpoints with public source IP addresses within the designated network IP address range. Enter a Source IPv4 Netmask to specify a range of IPv4 addresses or enter a Source IPv6 Netmask to specify a range of IPv6 addresses.
    If you set either netmask to 0, this option is disabled for the specified IP address type. For example, you can set a netmask to 0 if your portal or gateway supports only one IP address type (IPv4 or IPv6) or if you want to enable this option for only one IP address type (when your portal or gateway supports both IPv4 and IPv6). You can set only one netmask to 0 in a given gateway configuration; you cannot simultaneously set both netmasks to 0.
    If you accept the default Source IPv4 Netmask value of 32, authentication cookie usage is restricted to the same public IPv4 address of the endpoint to which the cookie was originally issued. If you accept the default Source IPv6 Netmask value of 128, authentication cookie usage is restricted to the same public IPv6 address of the endpoint to which the cookie was originally issued.
