This document describes how to connect to the Palo Alto GlobalProtect VPN client onto a Windows computer.
Note: This client is compatible only with Windows 7 and later.
Open the Palo Alto GlobalProtect client.
Type in the portal address: uwmadison.vpn.wisc.edu
Sign in using your UW Madison NetID and NetID password.
Note: In some special cases, such as with specific departmental VPNs, you will need to use Duo/MFA for two-factor authentication. Either enter the passcode from your fob/Duo MFA app, or enter "1" to use a Duo Push.
If all the previous steps are completed correctly, the VPN should be connected.
Note: If the Palo Alto GlobalProtect window disappears any point and clicking the icon in the tray at the bottom of the screen doesn't work, you can re-open it by using the search bar on the bottom left.
