L2 Linker

the customer have added a extra isp router which i need to route a certain subnet through it for internet , the problem the default route already route interent through the old outside interface , how do i route the specific inside subnet to the internet through the second outside interface?

you can set up policy based forwarding to direct a certain subnet to the second router

is that done on palo alto? how do i do that?



@chuckles He is a very nice article explaining how to set it up:




that article is complicated and also not my goal as i dont want a primary and secondary isp , i want to use a certain subnet to use a second isp , do i do that by policy forwarding on the palo alto? do i create a rule with the inside subnet as source and destination as any , then set the egress interface to the second isp outside interface and the second hop as the isp router public ip which is directly connected?


will i need to nat "PAT" from inside to outside with the second outside interface? will i need a security rule as well from inside to second outside interface? please help


You won't need PAT ( Unless there is a specific application )


You almost certainly will need an outbound NAT though.

You will need a mathcing security rule.


On the PBF just


set the source address and zone to match the required internal subnet.

set the destination as any

set the application as any ( unless you only want certain traffic to go out this way)

set the egress interface on the new service with the next hop as the outside router.
