If a user is having problems connecting to a Palo Alto VPN termination point using the GlobalProtect VPN client. DoIT will need the following information in order to figure out what is happening from both the client's point of view and the VPN appliance.
Things to gather from the VPN user are:

  1. The users full name, NetID and the time the problem was seen.
  2. What VPN are they connecting to.  (ie:
