VM-100 Deployment on ESXi

Hey, so I've been working with PaloAlto technology for a couple of months now.

 

I'm trying to set a lab environment to continue practicing for my PCNSE. However I am having some trouble figuring out the setup (specifically when it comes to the VMWare configuration). I'm working on vSphere using ESXi. I have a virtual Ubuntu Host and a VM-100 deployed. What I'm not sure how to do, is how to redirect all traffic from the host to the "inside" zone?

Any ideas?

Re: VM-100 Deployment on ESXi

Thanks for your feedback Joe! Truly apreciate it.

 

I managed to solve it. It turned out to be an issue with the configuration in my VMWare environment. In our testing environment we have HA and SDRS configured which move VMs around the hosts. Turns out that for a vSwitch to connect two hosts merely using Layer 2 capabilities both VMs must be in the same host. When adjusting this particular issue the connectivity was restored.

Re: VM-100 Deployment on ESXi

When it comes to "routing traffic", normally the default routes handle all of that traffic.. when you set everything up with the default router and what not then all traffic responding to any internal hosts should be automatically routed back to that host.. as long as NAT has been configured properly.

Stay Secure,
