Installing and Using GlobalProtect VPN Client with MacOSX

Installing the VPN Client

Installation is a one-time process:

  1. Open a web browser then go to and login with your Xavier credentials. This is a one time process to download/install the VPN client on your machine.
  2. Click on the "Download Mac 32/64 bit GlobalProtect agent" download link.
  3. Save and run the GlobalProtect .pkg install file that you downloaded.  This will launch the setup wizard.

  4. Click Continue and install for all users, and Continue to confirm the installation.  You will need to enter your Mac's password to complete the installation, followed by Close.


Connecting to the VPN

  1. After installation is complete, you will find the GlobalProtect client in the top menu bar. The GlobalProtect Icon will show your VPN connection status, which defaults Disconnected after your initial installation.  Click the icon and choose Connect.

  2. Enter your Xavier credentials when prompted, and if necessary enter "" into the Portal field.

  3. Once connected, you have full VPN access into Xavier's network, allowing you to access your network drives, intranet sites, and other Xavier resources.  Once you no longer require remote access,  click on the GlobalProtect icon in the system tray and select Disconnect.
