Description: The Palo Alto GlobalProtect client allows secure remote access to GW systems including Himmelfarb Library resources. The GlobalProtect client allows any installed application to communicate as though connected directly to GW.

Access: Free


  1. Open the GlobalProtect app.
  2. Enter the following portal address:
  3. Tap Connect. If you get a warning regarding the security certificate, tap Continue.
  4. Log in via GW Single Sign-On.
  5. Follow any security prompts to allow GlobalProtect to configure a VPN connection on your device. This allows GlobalProtect to route your requests through the GW network.

After connecting, you can minimize the app and use other GW systems as though you are on the campus network. When you are done using VPN, reopen the app and tap the button to disconnect.

After completing the initial setup, you should only have to tap the Connect button to reconnect in the future.
