Unable to add/register Transit firewalls on AWS to Panorama (on prem)

Hello, We have recently setup two Palo Altos in Transit VPC on AWS but I'm unable to add them to a on prem panorama. The status of both devices on Panorama shows disconnected. VM-Series plugins are installed on both firewalls and Panorama. Am I missing something?

Does your management interface have a route to Panorama and vice versa?  Assuming you are using the Transit VPC for VPN connectivity to on-prem that would typically not encompass the Management Interface.  You may need to add a service route so all Panorama communications occur from a routable address such as Eth1/1 or a loopback added to BGP.

You also need to allow the relevant ports from the FW to Panorama. Communication flows from the FW to Panorama on specific ports depending upon functionality:

The main one is TCP/3978 but TCP/28443 is necessary for the FW to pull updates.
