NEW!! DotW: DISCUSSION OF THE WEEK
INTRA-INTERFACE (packets enter and exit same interface?)
The Palo Alto Networks firewall comes with 2 implied security policies to ensure that sessions from and to the same zone are permitted and sessions from one zone to another are blocked unless overruled. But what if packets need to stay on the same interface? Check out the discussion and solution with Community member @MicGioia and others. Thanks for the lively discussion, everyone!
We've got a little trick up our sleeves. It's called U-Turn NAT, and if you've been wondering how to get to external web servers from inside your network, you'll want to watch this week's video from Tom.
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.

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.
AutoFocus is a great threat intelligence service that can be used by security operators and first responders to discover important threats on their network and quickly distinguish commodity threats from targeted attacks. Let's dig even deeper into this robust and versatile tool.
