In IPSEC if you need to reach  remote network on other side say then you need to put Static route saying

to reach remote network interface is tunnel .50


There is no need to apply the IP to any PA  interface as any traffic for will have tunnel interface as outgoing interface and tunnel interface is virtual and it knows it has to pass the traffic to interface with public IP address which in your

case is ae1


PA public IP ---------------ipsec tunnel --------------------------------------------Remote Device Public IP




So because the destination address is part of the proxy, it will route it via the tunnel.


Thought that might be the case.





did a quick check remove the static routes and tested the FIB for that destination it wasn't going via the tunnel !


Did a quick test the packets are not going out the tunnel - they are going out the public ae.


so my ae.7 is my internet and I have a few ip's on here. one of them is my end of the ipsec ike
