WiscVPN - Installing the Palo Alto GlobalProtect Client (Linux)

This document outlines the instructions to install Palo Alto GlobalProtect Client on Linux.
  1. Download the Linux client from this link. The file follows the format PanGPLinux*.tgz.

    • Note: The link will not work unless you already have the VPN. You must use the link on a separate machine (that has the VPN) to download the installer, send the installer to your desired machine (with an email, shared drive, etc.), then install it on Linux.
  2. Extract the package.

    tar -xvf ~/pkgs/PanGPLinux-4.1.5-c8.tgz
  3. Install the extracted .deb file (Note: this step is for Ubuntu and Debian distros): .

    sudo dpkg -i GlobalProtect_deb-


    sudo apt-get install GlobalProtect_deb-
    For Fedora / RedHat install the .rpm file: rpm -i --nodigest --nofiledigest GlobalProtect_rpm- 
  4. The client installs to /opt/paloaltonetworks/globalprotect. Settings and profile information are saved in $HOME/.globalprotect.
