Bypass/Disable Policy for destination address.

I want to make a policy/rule to bypass/disable policy in case of certain destination ip addresses. There is a way?

Hi @mandrake ,

 

Why don't you add a policy/rule with the certain destination IP before the current policy/rule ?

Or am I missing the point ?

You are right

But I already try it, but works only on personal IP address (PC client IP) and not to if i configure a destination address.

I've a pool of some destination public address that I want to reach without any filter / policy that are now on the firewall.

Just for convenience panos 8.1.x

Hello,

Should just be setting the source IP's to any and destination IP's to your group of specific IP's. You can also use User-ID if you have that setup so those destination IP's are accessible only by the Users you specify, or AD group.

I try but doesn't work. Checking for unused rules it evidence this rule, and I don't want add continuosly source ip addres, but use only the destination addesses.

Hi @mandrake ,

 

This should be straightforward to configure.

 

Are you able to send how you configured it exactly + show us how the session/traffic is actually being identified by the firewall ? This could clarify why it's not hitting your rule.

OK, as you can see in this image: rule 9 is the principal rule to go to internet.

If I put the client PC address in rule 4 it works but can reach any IP without security rules

If I put the client PC address and destination IP in rule 3 doesn't works. Also doesn't works using only destination addess.

Hello,

That is because your rule 4 has the destination IP's set to any. If you put in the destination IP's that you only want to get to, it will then be restricted to only those IP's.

 

Hope that makes sense.

You wrong, because I wrote: If I put the client PC address and destination IP in rule 3 doesn't works. Also doesn't works using only destination addess.

 

Rule number 4 insted of 3 works, but for all DESTINATION ADDRESS.

Hello,

Please look at your policies. Rule 3 and 4 have different source IP's. Please keep in mind the following:

 

The firewall reads rules top to bottom and left to right and all set conditions must match. If you provide me the current IP of the workstation and the external destination IP's I can help you write the correct policy.

 

Regards,
