Just checking in to see if anyone has had success with the PAN-OS + XBOX LIVE and getting NAT to level OPEN or MODERATE?

The only way that we got to Open was to run inbound NAT on selected Xbox's. Fortunately we have multiple external IP Addresses we could NAT with

Has anyone been able to get this to work without the use of multiple public IP address for each Xbox 360?

This is what was posted as a resolution, I hardly believe this to be a resolution unless everyone cutover to IPv6 and I didn't know about it.


Create a static NAT entry to forward all external traffic destined to a particular public IP to the private IP of the Xbox360 device.

Each Xbox360 device behind the firewall will require a public IP and an appropriate NAT mapping.

For information on how to configure a static 1-to-1 destination NAT policy, or bi-directional NAT mapping please refer to the Understanding PAN-OS NATdocument.

We ended up solving the problem by having Xboxes on a vlan that gave them public IP addresses. This was the only way we found to not receive complaints from end users.  Even giving the 1-1 NAT addresses didn't work and we really didn't want to add all the manual static NAT rules.
