Overlapping Proxy ID"s

I have a IPSEC site to site VPN with a Check Point firewall.  In the Palo Alto I have networks / proxy ID's that overlap each other?  Can this cause issues?


For example I have:


Local                                                   Remote                              


Because /24 is included in is something like this know to cause problems?

are these both to the same Checkpoint?

if so, both ends can (should) delete the proxyID with the subnet as this serves no purpose


it shouldn't cause any issues, but why risk it (if one end decides the /24 has precedence and the other prefers the /16, traffic could potentially get discarded)
