NAT before IPSEC

L0 Member

Hi folks,


We have a vendor requiring a public IP for the encrypted traffic.  Their guidance is based on Cisco configurations using "NAT before IPSEC" configurations.  Can anyone share/link a guide for this configuration on Palo?  Currently on PAN-OS 9.0 should it matter.


Thank you.
