several IKE Crypto Profiles on the same interface for SITE-to-SITE VPN

L1 Bithead

Hello dear colleagues,

 

according to the documentation, there is a limitation for IKE gateways:

All IKE gateways configured on the same interface or local IP address must use the same crypto
profile. (c) 

The same restriction is mentioned in the PANOS v8.1 course.

 

First of all, it seems strange that we cannot use different IKE options for different peers. Second, I use different IKE Crypto Profiles for different IKE gateways on the same public interface without any problem. I can see that they do use different algorithms for encrypting, hashing, DH group, etc. So it works.

 

  Is it some obsolete information they just forgot to remove? 

 

Regards,

Vladimir Stepanov

Definitelly a mistake. This would make firewall practically useless for VPNs.

Ok, thanks everybody, I am going to report them about this mistake. Just strange that this is mentioned in several sources.

Also on 9.1. Admin Guide site 907.

 

After Upgrading from working 9.0.8 with multiple IKE crypto profiles on same Interface / IP I got an auto commit error.status auto commit job public.JPG
