Palo RAVPN connection profiles?

L0 Member


I'm taking my first steps in palo and trying to understand RA VPN configuration.

I used to work with cisco devices where i have possibility to create different connection profiles for users and when they connect to vpn they can choose group where they want to connect. Example bellow:


I thought i will be able to configure something like that by creating one GPPortal and two GPGateways but as far as i checked i have no possibility to create two gateways on same IP Address.

Is something like that avaiable to configure?

if you need 2 gateways, you can attach one gateway to a loopback interface, and use a PAT rule to translate (for example) port 5000 externally to port 443 on the loopback. you can then add both IP's to the portal external gateway list, adding :5000 to the one on the loopback

Yeah but those gateways will have different IP addresses then? If not and just nat is there to do the job what is loopback for?

if you want them to have the same IP, you can run the first gateway on the external interface listening on port 443, then have a NAT rule that translates the external IP:5000 to loopbackIP:443


your portal config will look like this:


the first gateway is the regular fqdn, connecting to port 443, the second one is running on port 5000

You only need 1 IP this way, but the drawback is that the second gateway can't support IPSec


the alternative is to get an additional public IP address
