GlobalProtect Configuration for the IPsec Client on Apple iOS Devices
In this tech note, we describe the steps needed to configure an existing GlobalProtect Portal/Gateway environment to enable Apple iOS devices to establish VPN connectivity using the built-in iOS IPSec client. There are three methods for authentication that will be discussed: self- signed certificate, certificate issued by a root Certificate Authority (CA), and pre-shared secret.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This document discusses the use of the built-in IPSec client on your mobile device. For information on the new GlobalProtect app for iOS released in March of 2013, refer to the tech note at https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/docs/DOC-2020. The GlobalProtect iOS app enables you to benefit from all features of the GlobalProtect solution and is recommended over the built-in IPSec client.
