Hello Experts,

I'm trying to build a Microsoft Azure site-to-site vpn where the local end device is a Palo Alto Networks firewall.

I have been trying to follow the example shown here ....

But I'm not having any luck establishing a connection.

Has anyone successfully established a connection with a Palo Alto firewall?

Kind regards

Hello Experts,

I have managed to establish a connection in Microsoft Azure, see image, however the Tunnel won't come up in Palo Alto, but IKE is up

( description contains 'IKEv2 child SA negotiation is failed as initiator, non-rekey. Failed SA:[500]-[500] message id:0x00000107. Error code 111' )

Can someone please shed some light on the problem?

Check the routing table of devices between the firewalls.  A route table entry may need to be added or removed to provide proper network connectivity.
