Could Sophos in house users connect to GP of PA firewall

L3 Networker

Hi Team


I have a concer where we have a scenario.

(Branch office )Sophos -----------ipsec----------- PA(head office)


Could Sophos users that is branch office inhouse users connect to GP configured in Palo Alto firewall which is in head office. This communication should be via internal gateway not the external gateway. We have IPsec tunnel in place aldready.

When users connect to Sophos firewall (BO users) will become (BO inhouse users) this set of user need to connect with GP configured on (Head office ) PA firewall. 

If this is configured will the branch office users be able to access Branch office services?

Will the above mentioned set up will work? 

Post the possibilities.

I believe you could get this done with GP using internal host detection. For example, I have a remote user, internal host detection sees I'm in the remote office, so the client disables IPSec mode and uses the gateway provided in your internal host detection settings. If the gateway you provide is the internal IP of the Sophos, that should be fine.
