We have now 3 ISPs, we started to use load balancing (all methoeds tested);
Problem: Sometimes, packets from PA220, interface 1/4 (ISP 1), goes out to internet thru interface 1/5 (ISP 2).
User's traffic with no problem.. But PA220 internet traffic (VPN establishment for example) is inconsistent.
PA220 VPN initial IKE traffic example
VPN Gateway A
PA220 IP a.a.a.a (int 1/4) >>> peer IP b.b.b.b
At monitor > traffic we see
IP a.a.a.a (int 1/4) going thru int 1/5
VPN doesnt establish
Scenario as per below:
"VR-LAN" for LAN (lan interface + tunnel intrefaces)
"VR-WAN" for Internet links (all default routes with same cost)
Is there a way to internet traffic from PA220 be out of that load balacing ?
Just setup a static route to the public IP on the endpoint for the VPN, via 1 of the 3 interfaces.
This way the VPN wil always go out via this specific route instead of randomly (as dictated via ECMP)
For redundancy you could setup multiple tunnels and have routing figure out the best path, but that would only work when the other side has a PaloAlto as well (or a Juniper SRX/SSG).
hello thanks for the reply... but the VPN doesnt establish very well..... because of the worng behavior at public interface...
INT 1/4 public IP is 220.127.116.11... gateway is 18.104.22.168
But that traffic from 1/4 (22.214.171.124) is going thru 1/5.... (NATed to 1/5 IP) and then VPN doesnt establish (the other side expect 126.96.36.199.... )
that is the main problem...
I think you missed my point.
You have 3 equal cost paths, making the FW semi-randomly choosing the path to the VPN endpoint Public IP.
By entering a single new route, just for the Public IP of the VPN Endpoint, to go out over only 1 of the interfaces, then you would have a consistend outgoing public IP. And when the return traffic comes in, it would follow the same route in reverse
