4 Things to Consider When Deploying a NAT Policy

NAT PolicySince my IT career hasn’t been a “traditional one,” and by that, I am referring to someone that wears one primary hat – developer, security officer, network engineer, etc., — I’ve always had the need to keep track of all of the tricks and tips that I’ve come across over the years. In that vein, what I’ve done is created my own documentation for different broad topics (like CentOS, Windows PowerShell, etc.) and then organized those documents into different sections covering how to do something, a quick reference guide to make my life easier. This way, I can come to a single document on a given topic, do a quick find on a certain keyword, and get the command or instructions for something I only do once every year or two.

In this next article of our IPSec Tunnel series, we will cover what it takes to connect a Palo Alto Networks firewall to a Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance (ASA). For me, this became a necessity from nearly day one of having my PA-220 in my home lab, as it was right next to my Cisco ASA. Having services behind each network that I wanted to talk to each other meant that getting the tunnel built between them was a quick necessity.

From Charles Buege, Fuel User Group Member

Continuing my series on how to setup IPSec tunnels on Palo Alto Networks firewalls, this article covers how to connect to an IPFire firewall. As I wrote in the initial article in this series, I realized not everyone would necessarily have access to the same resources I would. This got me thinking – how could someone with access to only one Palo Alto Networks firewall learn how to setup and configure IPSec tunnels?
