VISD Technology Department will be updating the Global Protect VPN portal address.

You will need to change your Global Protect VPN Portal Address after opening the Global Protect Program.

To input the new Global Protect settings you will have to go down to the bottom right corner of your screen and find
your Global Protect icon that looks like a globe and click it. You may have to click the arrow to show the rest of your
menu to find it.
Once you click that globe you should get a connection window. When you see this window you will need to click the
settings icon in the top right corner of the screen. Then, click “Settings”
When you click the “Settings” button it will bring up a new “Global Protect Settings” window. In this window click the
“Add” button.
When you click the “Add” button it will bring up another new window and in this window it will be asking for a “Portal
Address”. Please type in “” as seen in the screenshot below. Then click “Save”
Once you click save, on the previous window you will see two sets of numbers. Click "" as shown in the
screenshot below then click “Delete”. Another window will pop up asking again if you would like to delete. Click
“Delete” again.
Once you delete the old address, click the X in the top right corner of the screen. That’s it! You’re done! You can now
connect as usual to the Global Protect VPN.
