VIPs on loopback with s2s communication

Gents,

 

Need your assistance here.. i have a s2s connection and i want the remote side to access my server ports through loopback interface. s2s is up and able to reach my loopback interface, however my VIPs port forwarding using loopback is not responding.. base on my diagnose sniffer shows that remote are able to reach the loopback but no ack receive as shown below.

Have you setup two rules in the FW?

1 - From: loop interface To: server interface with destination the VIP

2 - From: external interface or any To: loopback interface

Hi @hbuenafe81,

 

Please run debug flow commands suggested by mpeddalla and provide the output if possible. You can also refer to https://community.fortinet.com/t5/FortiGate/Troubleshooting-Tip-First-steps-to-troubleshoot-connecti...

thanks hbac, the logs indicate that the traffic is matching the deny all policy. I don't why it hitting to that implicit deny policy. i'll share the logs soon, i was on road driving.

@hbuenafe81,

 

From what I see, I believe you need another policy with Loopback102 as incoming interface and outgoing interface should be your internal interface.

thanks the suggestion, i already did this reverse policy but no luck at all.

Hi @hbuenafe81,

 

What do you mean reverse policy? Can you show me that policy? Have you had a chance to collect debug flow? https://community.fortinet.com/t5/FortiGate/Troubleshooting-Tip-First-steps-to-troubleshoot-connecti...

hi @hbac, - loopback to VIP server shows no hits but its working.

For policy 'loopback-dmz', what do you have in the source field? I believe it is wrong. You can try to set it to all and test.

Gents,

 

Just an update, I tried to simulate locally and found issue same, what i did is make other interface and create a policy to communicate with loopback and its was successfully. However the same issue, the server port that was assign to loopback via VIPs (multiple test servers and port) are not open. its weird i don't know the issue here. :(  Anyone tried VIPs using loopback as external ip?
