We asked about the craziest place you've ever had to deploy the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewall and if you had any tips to share from the experience. We loved your responses -- it proves we have a bold, global community on the move, ready to deploy firewalls just about anywhere.
@johnsontoI didn't get to go but I had to deploy the firewall in London. Got a call at 3am in the morning and started configuring. It was a good time.
@bmorris1Maybe not crazy, but defintiely the nicest, Hyde Park in London.
@LCMember4723 Flew from Los Angeles, CA to an Underground Parking Garage in Auckland, NZ
@oscaringosvLocation: Small branch Offices with Cisco ASA, migrate to PA-2XX series
Tip: I did't use the migration tool for Cisco firewalls, I created a new configuration or Panorama templates/device configuration stacks, is by far better and faster than migrating all kind of rules, good if you have a lot of objects and subnets. Palo Alto Networks firewall makes implementation way easier.
@Willian Location: Installed an evaluation for a coal export terminal customer one day in the middle of nowhere. Customer enabled SPAN/TAP on their old 3750 and brought the entire port system down.
Tip: Don't enable SPAN/TAP on old Cisco 3750 switches. Use VWire instead, and the result will still be amazing and the customer will gain the required visibility.
