Vwire on MPLS link ?

Would vwire on an MPLS link be supported ?

I guess that traffic will be passed, but will the firewall be able to see/inspect the real data ( and thus strip of the mpls headers ?)

Re: Vwire on MPLS link ?

Hello Bart,

PAN firewall in vwire mode can be deployed in a MPLS environment and the traffic would just run fine.We currently do not have the capability to inspect in MPLS environments, however, there is a feature request (FR ID : 1050) submitted to your development team for it to be included in future releases. You can also request your SE to vote for it.

Hope that helps!

Thanks and regards,

Re: Vwire on MPLS link ?

So, just to clarify, if I use Vwire to pass traffic through the firewall it won't inspect the traffic? So, I won't have any application specific details about the MPLS traffic? How does the PA display the traffic in the logs?
