Palo Alto GlobalProtect on Fedora

After spending some serious time trying to get GlobalProtect 4.1.2 to work on Fedora 28 (and probably 27 earlier this year) I finally managed to get it working. It is almost embarrassing how easy it was…

  1. Replace /etc/redhat-release and /etc/os-release with info from RHEL 7 or CentOS 7
  2. Profit.

Yep….it’s sucky….but at least it shows that this works. Maybe it is possible to modify some file that lists supported operating systems……will have to look into that later on.

Always read the release notes….and the supported OS lists…..and the error logs. Even better if you do it all in the same evening to puzzle this amazing solution together……

FYI: The error I was getting was: Error: Gateway my.gateway.hostname: The server certificate is invalid. Please contact your IT administrator.
