Default Gateway from the Palo Alto Firewall is not reachable

Not applicable

Hello,

I have configured inside, outside and DMZ on the Palo Alto firewall. The outside interface is configured for Global Protect.

The default gateway of Palo Alto firewall is not reachable. But when we connect to that cable to ASA firewall we are able to ping gateway.

Please help us to troubleshooting the issue.

Regards,

Parvez

Hi,

How do you test to reach default gateway ?

you mean ping source OUTSIDE host DGW ?

ParvezAhmad are you specifying the source of your pings as being the OUTSIDE interface of your PA that is facing your default gateway when you're doing your tests?

Example:

ping source 216.5.4.3 host 216.5.4.1

Also are you sure the PA firewall isn't blocking the pings? Do you have a policy rule defined that says "allow outside to outside" with App-ID ping?

Also as was previously mentioned if the PA has the same IP as the ASA you're testing with, it makes sense to force a gratuitous ARP to make sure the ARP cache on your default gateway device updates with the PA MAC address instead of the ASA MAC address.

Hi,

I tested by using ping host xxx.ccc.xxx.zzzz.

I am doing migration from ASA firewall to Palo Alto firewall. I am using the same cable to connect to Palo Alto outside interface E1/1.

Parvez do

ping source <your outside interface IP on your Palo Alto> host xxx.ccc.xxx.zzz

I believe after 180 seconds. It should remove automatically.

Or Do we remove it by Clear ip arp?

Firewall is not blocking the pings. Since there is policy as you mentioned.

Do you think that Global Protect Configuration can block this ping?

if you don't type source FW uses management interface for the ping command

Parvez: yes the ARP cache will eventually time out

Can you please try "ping source <your outside interface IP on your Palo Alto> host xxx.ccc.xxx.zzz" and let us know your results?
