VLAN taggin Wireless traffic

L1 Bithead

I have a Wireless Access Point with multiple SSID's configured connected to a PA-200 on the interface ethernet2 (vlan).


The PA config is setup as per https://live.paloaltonetworks.com/t5/Configuration-Articles/Setting-Up-the-PA-200-for-Home-and-Small...


I would like to apply a security policy between each SSID.  How would I approach this? Do I need to setup sub vlans or tag the vlans?

Hi there...Assuming each SSID has its own IP subnet, you can try to assign multiple IPs to the VLAN interface (,, etc).  Then write the security rules to inspect traffic within the same Trust-L3 zone:


Trust-L3 --> Trust-L3 src= dst= action=allow/deny


Alternatively, Eth2 can be configured as a layer3 interface with multiple IPs (,, etc) and define policies as above.  Thanks.

Thanks for the response.  Much appreciated.


So just to confirm, there is no need to setup vlan sub interfaces?


I will give what you suggested a go...
