Hi, on a PA3020 I have connected a cat5 cable for a  site to site connection, and the other side has a Cisco ASA5505 with the base license.

On the PAN i have configured a layer3 interface, with ip 192.168.187.2, and on the ASA i have configured ip 192.168.187.1

I have created a virtual router, without any routes on the palo, and a new zone "site-to-site", where the interface 1/10 is assigned

i have created a rule to allow all traffic from "site-to-site" zone to "site-to-site"

When the ASA tries to ping PAN, i can see the packet as "allowed" in the Palo, but it does not send a ping response. Also from the Palo, I can not ping the ASA. I am attaching a screenshot to illustrate..

monitor
On the ASA side, the interface is configured in a vlan "site-to-site"

both the Palo and the ASA are also used for other internet connections and they work properly, but for the site-to-site link I am encountering this problem.

I also do not see arp entries on either side.

any ideas what could be the issue?

Thanks

On the PAN side, did you create an interface mgmt profile which allows PING and attach it to the the interface you are trying to ping from the ASA?

yeah i did that.

turns out the issue was that even though I created the new virtual router for this interface, i did not add the static route that was required in order to route 192.168.187.x packets to PAN interface 1/10. that was different compared to the ASA which does not need a static route when the hosts are on the same subnet.

Thanks
