Allow dark trace rst packets

L2 Linker

We have a 5220 at the core of our network making east / west decisions between LAN segments and dark trace (DT) appliance. I currently have the DT appliance configured to take autonomous action with DT respond.  One of the ways DT enforces this is by sending TCP RST packets to the "infected pc," by spoofing the source and/or destination IP address. As you can imagine, this gets dropped as soon as it hits the PA gateway interface and never reaches the destination PC.

Is there a way to allow an exception just for the Dark Trace appliance to send RST packets (from spoofed IP) to any LAN segment through the PA?

Check the unified logs and see the information as to why the DT packets are being dropped. Then create a security policy to allow that type of traffic. Might have to disable some security features on the security policy to allow this.
