Palo Alto Firewall: Adding A Static Route In CLI

Real quick, I think this is useful for adding a lot of static routes into a Palo Alto.  SSH in and do this in CLI and type "configure".  Then type out the following:
set network virtual-router [name of virtual router i.e. default] routing-table ip static-route [name of route i.e. Shanes-Route] admin-dist 10 destination [network/subnet mask i.e 10.10.10.0/24] interface [name of interface to be used outgoing i.e. ethernet1/1] nexthop ip-address [next hop ip i.e. 4.4.4.4]

Add 50 or so of them from notepad at one time, then type in "commit".

Palo Alto Firewall: Verifying A Route In CLI

Real quick, how do you verify what interface a destination route goes out of the Palo Alto in CLI?  Here is what you do:
PA850-1(active)> test routing fib-lookup virtual-router vsys_router ip 192.168.1.5

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
runtime route lookup
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
virtual-router:   vsys_router
destination:      192.168.1.5
result:
  via 5.5.5.5 interface ethernet1/3, source 5.5.5.6, metric 10
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Right there it is.  Its ethernet1/3 in this case.  I wanted to know what interface 192.168.1.5 would be going out, and with the above command, it tells me.  Note that "vsys_router" is your virtual router that you have defined for routing.  It may be default in your case, or whatever you named it.

From Hurricane Michael: Panama City, FL

On my way over to Panama City, FL, I saw this from the hurricane. This was a little over two months after. It's literally like this in most of the area. I had said that it looked like someone took a giant lawn mower and just went over the city. Be sure to pray for these folks.
By the way, these trees are broken over towards the Gulf. Which means this was the weaker side of the hurricane.

Home Project: Back Door

Ok, what doesn't look right here?

Yeah, you are right. It's not centered. The guy who did this put a 2x4 on the left side, but didn't think that the trim would be off. I had him redo it.

Home Projects: Opening Up The Room

One of the walls that we took out was going into the Florida room (sun room). We opened up a 22 foot span, from living room to kitchen and on into the sun room. This really opened up the space.

Before we bought the house:


The wall has now been taken down and we have the beam in place to open up the rooms.

The above picture is before we started on the kitchen cabinets, but it gives you an idea on how much it opens up the rooms. The middle and upper left side will be completely open. The bottom left is where the kitchen cabinets are going (already in progress). The 6x6 post in the middle is a good support for the beam and will be wrapped in cypress wood, along with each side and the beam itself.

Another Day Of Information Getting Stolen

It's almost a daily read in today's time. Your information getting stolen from someone's database. Like the link below, it could be somewhere you stayed at a hotel. It could be the company you work for, where your data is stored by HR. It could even be your payroll company that was hired by the company you work for. It might even be a bank you do business with that sold your information to someone else. I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that you need to be proactive about security.

Proverbs 18:13

To answer before listening—
    that is folly and shame.

This verse reminds me of the saying: Seek to understand, then to be understood. Either way, both wise.

Home Projects: Kitchen Reno #3

As some of you know, we are in the process of redoing another fixer upper. I think I'll start posting more things about it here, but wanted to show some progress on the kitchen area. 
This was how it started out:

This is after the rip out:

And this is how it is to date. Still have a little ways to go, but getting there.

I'll post s finished product when we complete it.
