SSL VPN Configuration - HELP!

L0 Member

Hi All,

I have been strugeling to get set up the SSL VPN on v3.1.3

I have managed to get the page to login appear

I have managed to be able to login

I have been able to dowload and get the client connect

but for some odd reason it will not communicate to the network !!! :smileyconfused:

I have followed the article on the VPN connection on this site, I have also check the logs with a deny rule at the end of my policy to see if there is anything being denied which does not hit a rule and added in a rule accordingly to what I have seen from the logs but still nothing.

Would someone be able (who has got this running) to post a quick pictorial and sugestions.

Many Thanks

Hello Marct,

if you are already able to get the client to connect and get an ip then the issue probably has to do with policy or routing.

Can you verify the following:

make sure that the zone that the tunnel interface for the ssl vpn has policies/rules allowing the traffic to other desired zones

make sure that the ssl vpn tunnel interface is attached to a virtual router (this virtual router should also have interfaces facing the other subnets that you want the ssl vpn users to be able to connect to)

make sure that the ip range or the subnet that you have assigned to the sslvpn users is not the same as any of the other subnets in your network

Hi Stephen,

I got the similar problem on configuring SSL VPN in PA. Actually, my network is:

Eth1/5 l3-untrust network

Eth1/6 l3-trust network

Tunnel l3-trust

Those three interfaces are under the same virtual router with below routing:

default-route int eth1/5 next_hop

tunnel traffic to corp int tunnel is a SSL VPN portal client IP pool

Anything I missed? Thanks!


If you have already verified all of my previous suggestion, then you may want to start looking into other factors like the following:

make sure that the device you are trying to reach does not have a firewall that is on or limiting connections to it

make sure that the device you are trying to reach is routing back to the pan device when trying to get back to ssl vpn other words when your device tries to reach this network (, it should routed back to pan device.



Did you mean the device I want to reach have to add a routing table for SSLVPN pool ( via The source of the packet will use 172.16.1.x info?

BTW, I tested before but it seems cannot be done. I already added the routing table to the device I want to go which is
