Second backup endpoint for IPSEC tunnel

L4 Transporter

Is there a document that describes how best to configure a backup IPSEC endpoint on an IPSEC tunnel should the primary endpoint go down?


Is it just a matter of two tunnels and setting the routing properly or can this be done with a single tunnel configuration but a second endpoint?

Depends on peer firewall.

Is it Palo-to-Palo VPN?

Unfortunately no. It is a Sonicwall at the other end.
