PA support SVTI


PA support SVTI

Hi @reaper 


Do palo alto support SVTI like Cisco.

SVTI configurations can be used for site-to-site connectivity in which a tunnel provides always-on access between two sites. The advantage of using SVTIs as opposed to crypto map configurations is that users can enable dynamic routing protocols on the tunnel interface without the extra 4 bytes required for GRE headers, thus reducing the bandwidth for sending encrypted data.

Hi @Venkatesan_radhakrishnan 


What you describe is the transition for Cisco from GRE based tunnels to IPSec based tunnels (this happened somewhere around 2004)

Our default VPN is IPSec based and uses virtual tunnel interfaces


In PAN-OS 9.0 we added GRE support to be backward compatible to pre-ipsec devices ;)
