PING from Firewall GUI

Hi All,

 

I have a basic doubt.

Isit possible to ping from firewall GUI ?

If not from Panaroma CLI, isit possible to connect firwall ( to test the ping from firewall to host )

 

Reason : To check the network latency from fireawall.

 

Thanks

hi @karthik2019

 

No, this can not be done from the GUI

you can from the CLI from 2 different 'planes'

 

>ping host x.x.x.x

will ping from the management interface

>ping source y.y.y.y host x.x.x.x

will ping from the dataplane interface that owns ip y.y.y.y

The ping command only works from the local device, panorama does not have dataplane interfaces so you can't add source from panorama either

To be able to run the ping from a firewall, you need to connect to the firewalls' CLI

Re: PING from Firewall GUI

Had same error- "bind: Cannot assign requested address" on firewall when sourcing ping from ethernet 1/5 (not Panorama).  Found that after we had done a load saved config snapshot to restore a config, one of the physical interfaces had the "untagged subinterface" checkbox checked.  We undid this checkbox and everything was back to normal.  Hope this can help someone else.
