Natting Palo Alto's Management Address?

L0 Member

Hello.  I currently have the management interface on my PA configured with a IP address on my outside/untrusted network.  I would like to change the management address to an IP on one of my inside/trusted networks.  When I change my management address, how do I configure NAT for this new management address to allow access to outside for Panorama, Palo Alto Network Services, etc. ?

I'm not sure if i understood your question fully but why dont you just go into device\services\service route config and change your external services to your external interface, i assume they already work on that interface....

Thanks for the response.  Using Service Route was my first thoughts, but I had read somewhere that it was not best practice.  I don't recall thier reasoning, I'll have to find it again.



but do you not already have outgoing (trust to untrust) NAT in place for your outgoing traffic.


if so then i would have assumed that your local routing would have pushed  outgoing traffic from management interface via this route.


Also make sure you have a policy that allows the traffic, dont inspect it and also dont decrypt it.



I agree with MickBall.  Either edit your service route config and use an internet routable address to pull from PAN or set your mgmt interface on a subnet with a gateway that routes to the PAN for NAT.  Having your mgmt interface on an internet routable address is a really BAD idea.


If you are using a legit certificate for your management interface and are using policies to allow access from only certain IP's (others you own), I dont see why allowing access should be an issue?


Just my thoughts.
