DotW: DISCUSSION OF THE WEEK

URL WILDCARD PATTERN

Link to article URL Wildcarad Pattern here

Is it possible to block URLs that have a particular pattern or string? Community member @oscaringosv asks about this as well as blocking keywords. Members @BPry and others chime in. Our Solutions Engineer, Kim, does a great wrap-up of the discussions and presents a comprehensive listing of separators, a thorough discussion of tokens, and points the way to workarounds. See more on this topic in our discussion forum at:

Kim has more outstanding pointers in the article, URL Wildcard Pattern. From the article, send comments, feedback, and your ideas to Kim @kiwi

 

TIPS & TRICKS:  WHY USE A VPN PROXY ID?

Link to article Why Use a VPN Proxy ID? here

When we are talking about IPSec VPN tunnels, if you are setting up the Palo Alto Networks firewall to work with a peer that supports policy-based VPN, you must define proxy IDs.  Our Solutions Engineer Joe walks you through how to do that here.

Joe explains, in highly illustrative diagrams, how and why a VPN Proxy ID is essential to your configuration.

GETTING STARTED: FIREWALL AS A PPPOE OR DHCP CLIENT

Article and video for you

When setting up a firewall in a smaller office or in an off-the-grid location, the local ISP may only be able to connect you through a cable or DSL modem, requiring your external interface to be configured as a DHCP client or PPPoE client. Our Solutions Engineer Tom has you covered from start to finish. Check your setup and get your office up and running!
