PANOS 8.0.4 warning ipv6 not enabled on tunnel interface

L3 Networker

Hello All,

I just upgraded to 8.0.4 and now when I commit the tunnel interface associated with my external GP gateway gives a warning that "ipv6 is not enabled on the tunnel interface tunnel.1.  IPv6 address will be ignored!"

Did something change in the gateway configuration.  I've gone over and over a few times and am not finding a reference to IPv6 anywhere.  It's set to use IPv4 Only.  If I remove the tunnel interface from the gateway config or I enable IPv6 on the tunnel interface, the warning goes away.  Is there a setting I need to change or could this be an issue with 8.0.4?



I'm still seeing the commit warnings with 8.1.9.


  • Warning: tunnel tunnel.666 ipv6 is not enabled. IPv6 address will be ignored!
  • (Module: rasmgr)

please try this 


Disable IPv6 Firewalling under Device - Setup - Session - Session Settings will get rid of those warnings.


Unchecking Enable IPv6 Firewalling from Session Settings did not clear the tunnel interface warnings.

I mean you need to check the option for IPV6  Firewalling from Session Settings
