Publishing website issue.

L2 Linker
Hi Experts,

I am trying to publish a website, the webserver is behnid my Palo alto, i created NAT rule from public IP to be natted to the internal webserver IP address. What is starnge here is that i am not able to see my traffic when trying to reach the website from external. I was testing from my mobile so i put in Montior traffic tab source is my mobile public IP but couldnt find any logs:s.

Any suggestions?

@SamerKiwan ,

Can you post your NAT rule so we can see how you've actually configured it? During testing also ensure that you've overrode the default security rules and enabled logging so that you actually get logs generated if you hit the interzone-default security entry.

did you set your inbound NAT policy untrust to untrust, and your security policy untrust to dmz with the external IP as destination ?

If you're able to get to the site, but not actually see the traffic in your traffic logs then I'm guessing the source IP and the Webstie are in the same zone and you're not logging "intrazone" traffic.

Please find the NAT policy attached, and all my security policies are having logging enabled. 



I tried all kinds of NAT policies and i tired the one you mentioned, but for some reason still no logs, maybe the issue is from public IP itself ? should i contact ISP to check with him?

No Brandon i am not able to reach the website from external, i can only from internal network.



Why you don't create a rule from Outside to Outside with VIP as destination and DNAT of your internal IP? It must work.


How about you security rule? It is create Outside to Internal with VIP ip on destination field?
