GlobalProtect Portal Settings
Description
Name
Type a name for the portal (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 portal is available. For a firewall that is not in multi-vsys mode,
Location
selection is not available. After you save the portal, you cannot change
Location
.
Network Settings
Interface
Select the name of the firewall interface that will be the ingress for communications from remote endpoints and firewalls.
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
Specify the IP address on which to run the GlobalProtect portal web service. Select the
IP Address Type
and then enter the
IP Address
.
  • The IP address type can be
    IPv4
    (for IPv4 traffic only),
    IPv6
    (for 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 IP address type for each.
