Cato Mangament Application Notification: Incorrect Routing Configuration in Network Rules

Incorrect Routing Configuration in Network Rules

During a routine review, we discovered that the Route via option in Network Rules isn’t configured correctly for some of our customers. We are letting you know that you didn’t define a PoP to egress traffic from, this means that the traffic egresses from whichever PoP that the site is connected to. This is the same behavior as if Route/NAT is set to None.

Starting on Oct. 15th, 2023, there will be a new in the Cato Management Application to prevent these types of incorrect configurations. Please make sure to edit the relevant rules and remove the Route via configuration or define a PoP location for this option before you can save the rule.

After validation is added, customers with the above configurations will not be able to save any new configurations until they change the rule to resolve the incorrect configuration.

What Changes Do I Need to Make?

Edit the Network Rules policy and identify the rules where no PoP is defined for the Route via method.

To edit the Routing option for the rule, make one of the following changes in the Routing Method section:

  • Set Route/NAT to None. This is the same behavior as the current setting, and there is no change to behavior in your account.
  • Select specified PoP locations for the rule. Traffic matching this rule will start to be routed to egress from the configured PoP locations. The best practice is to configure at least two PoP locations to egress from.
