Request



  • It would be great if routes could be created on loopback interfaces. Basically the ability to inject a subnet as local to the firewall into the route table without null routing it.

    What is the intended use case?

    You can get close to that by adding an IP alias VIP inside the subnet with localhost as its interface and a subnet mask sized appropriately for the network you want to route to localhost. It should get a link route on lo0 then



  • In my case I have a blocks that are not being used on an interface directly. Some are being used for NAT. I have a superset route that includes these blocks. If I put them in with null as the gateway, then the NATs don't work. If I don't have them in as a route then the NATs are used in the correct conditions, but in all other conditions the traffic is forwarded to the hop for the supernet.

    Thanks,
