PA-VM 7.0.1 cannot ping outside

L1 Bithead


I am new to Palo alto firewall. On my test lab I am using a L3 Cisco switch with multiple VLANs. The PA-VM is configured with sub-interfaces. from CLI (command line) I can ping all the interfaces on the inside LAN. My workstation (Inside) can only ping the PA management interface but can not ping any other VLANs on the PA.


Also, the default route is properly configured on the PA  (Virtual router) according to the videos I am following on the internet, but the PA (CLI) can not ping


I am wondering what I am doing wrong, please help.


Many thanks.

Start with the logs, where are they blocking you, set a filter with the source IP of the interface you are pinging from. My suspicion is that its either a missing route, a security policy, or a NAT rule not configured properly. Also for interfaces, they need to have an interface management profile to allow responses to ping.
