Hub-Spoke OCVPN with inter-overlay source NAT

Hub-Spoke OCVPN with inter-overlay source NAT

This topic provides a sample configuration of Hub-Spoke OCVPN with inter-overlay source NAT. OCVPN isolates traffic between overlays by default. With NAT enabled on Spokes and assign-ip enabled on Hub, you can have interoverlay communication.

Inter-overlay communication means devices from any source addresses and any source interfaces can communicate with any devices in overlays’ subnets when the overlay option assign-ip is enabled.

To enable ‘NAT’, disable ‘auto-discovery’ first.

License

  • Free license: Hub-spoke network topology not supported.
  • Full License: Maximum of 2 hubs, 10 overlays, 64 subnets per overlay; 512 spokes, 10 overlays, 16 subnets per overlay.

Prerequisites

  • All FortiGate devices must be running FortiOS version 6.2.0 or later. l All FortiGate devices must have Internet access. l All FortiGates must be registered on FortiCare by using the same FortiCare account.

Restrictions

Sample network topology

Sample configuration

You can only configure this feature by using the CLI.

To enable inter-overlay source NAT from CLI:

  1. Configure the Primary-Hub, enable overlay QA, and configure assign-ip and IP range:

config vpn ocvpn set status enable set role primary-hub config overlays edit 1 set name “QA” set assign-ip enable set ipv4-start-ip 172.16.101.100 set ipv4-end-ip 172.16.101.200 config subnets edit 1 set subnet 172.16.101.0 255.255.255.0

next

end

next edit 2 set name “PM” set assign-ip enable config subnets edit 1 set subnet 172.16.102.0 255.255.255.0

next

end

next

end

end

  1. Configure the Secondary-Hub:

config vpn ocvpn set status enable set role secondary-hub

end

  1. Configure Spoke1, and enable NAT on the spoke:

config vpn ocvpn set status enable set auto-discovery disable set nat enable config overlays edit 1 set name “QA” config subnets edit 1 set subnet 10.1.100.0 255.255.255.0

next

end

next edit 2 set name “PM” config subnets edit 1 set subnet 10.2.100.0 255.255.255.0

next

end

next

end

end

  1. Configure Spoke2, and enable NAT enabled on the spoke:

config vpn ocvpn set status enable set auto-discovery disable

set nat enable config overlays edit 1 set name “QA” config subnets edit 1 set subnet 192.168.4.0 255.255.255.0

next

end

next edit 2 set name “PM” config subnets edit 1 set subnet 192.168.5.0 255.255.255.0

next

end

next

end

end

A firewall policy with NAT is generated on the spoke:

edit 9 set name “_OCVPN2-1.1_nat” set uuid 3f7a84b8-3d36-51e9-ee97-8f418c91e666

set srcintf “any” set dstintf “_OCVPN2-1.1” set srcaddr “all” set dstaddr “_OCVPN2-1.1_remote_networks”

set action accept set schedule “always” set service “ALL” set comments “Generated by OCVPN Cloud Service.” set nat enable
