Can anyone please tell my why the firewall is showing a private IP under IPSEC TUNNELS -> Tunnel Info?

This info comes from ProxyID field and shows SA remote peer subnet. Seems you clicked on "Tunnel info" under Network > IPSec Tunnels.

@Schneur_Feldman,

Stupid question, but should it be a public IP in your environment? If you have a private network setup between the firewalls you may not actually see a public IP due to an internal IP being utilized. It's a slightly abnormal configuration to use a tunnel over a private network, but there's nothing to say you can't and in some instances it can actually be beneficial.

Hi BPry,

 

This is just a standard site to site Tunnel over the public Internet.
