DOTW: DISCUSSION OF THE WEEK

BLOCKED TRAFFIC HAS AN ALLOW LOG

An allow log for blocked traffic certainly seems a bit unexpected, right? If a particular category is blocked by URL filtering, what mechanisms would allow traffic through? Let's get to the bottom of this seeming oddity in the Discussion of the Week (DotW), Blocked Traffic Has an Allow Log. We first presented this discussion from our member community in February. Back by popular demand. Let's find out more about session processing on the Palo Alto Networks firewall.

From the article, think of a really challenging question or scenario (think hard!) and send it Tom's way @reaper

 

TIPS & TRICKS

HOW TO OPEN A SUPPORT CASE ON ROUTING ISSUES (OSPF & BGP)

We ran this fresh, new article from our TAC community as our support feature last week -- back by popular demand. 

When troubleshooting routing issues, a packet capture on the data plane and the management plane is critical for troubleshooting. Let's look at the information required by the support engineer and a few case studies showing common issues with OSPF routing and solutions.

From the article, please offer comments or questions, which will send to @sraghunandan

 

GETTING STARTED: POLICY BASED FORWARDING

What More Can My Firewall Do? Policy Based Forwarding (PBF)

Maybe you've already checked out Quality of Service and limited or guaranteed bandwidth based on application, but there's another cool trick the firewall can do—policy based forwarding or PBF. Policy based forwarding allows you to bypass the routing table in favor of routing options dictated by a policy configurable based on applications, source or destination. In short, this means you can choose to have certain applications use a different link without needing to tweak the routing table. Want to learn how? Right this way, please...

From the article, please share questions, comments and the joy of learning with Tom @reaper

 

VIDEO TUTORIAL: HOW TO SET UP DoS PROTECTION

How To Set Up DoS Protection

Configure policies to protect against DoS attacks by using a DoS protection rulebase. Policies can be configured to match zone, interface, IP address or user information. See how it's done.

From the article, please let Kim know when you've successfully completed your DoS protection rulebase by leaving a comment, kudos, question, or cookies of the old-fashioned, baked variety ('tis the season) for him @kiwi.
