GlobalProtect Gateway General Settings
Description
Name
Enter a name for the gateway (up to 31 characters). The name is case-sensitive and must be unique. Use only letters, numbers, spaces, hyphens, and underscores.
Location
For a firewall that is in multiple virtual system mode, the Location is the virtual system (vsys) where the GlobalProtect gateway is available. For a firewall that is not in multi-vsys mode, the Location field does not appear in the GlobalProtect Gateway dialog.
After you save the gateway configuration, you cannot change the Location.
Network Settings Area
Interface
Select the name of the firewall interface that will serve as the ingress interface for remote endpoints. (These interfaces must already exist.)
Do not attach an interface management profile that allows Telnet, SSH, HTTP, or HTTPS to an interface where you have configured a GlobalProtect portal or gateway because this will expose the management interface to the internet. Refer to Best Practices for Securing Administrative Access for more details on how to protect access to your management network.
IP Address
(Optional) Specify the IP address for gateway access. Select the IP Address Type, then enter the IP Address.
  • The IP address type can be IPv4 (IPv4 traffic only), IPv6 (IPv6 traffic only), or IPv4 and IPv6. Use IPv4 and IPv6 if your network supports dual-stack configurations, where IPv4 and IPv6 run at the same time.
The IP address must be compatible with the IP address type. For example, 172.16.1.0 for IPv4 or 21DA:D3:0:2F3b for IPv6. If you choose IPv4 and IPv6, enter the appropriate address type for each.
