FileBlocking only one way or ip ?

Hi, iam new to the PA product line and trying to figure out stuff in my pa220 before i release them to production.


In one of the scenarios presented; there was a request/question - is it possible to allow users to upload files to a share from one specific ip range and then deny that very ip range to download any type of files from that share ? And users on an other side be able to upload/download files.


Could the solution be some zone creation, 2 different zones and Fileblocking policy and specify direction for each file extension? And is there something thats only supported in larger models like 3020-3050 ?


I provided a scetch to try and explain what iam writing, as sometimes iam not too good at writing down in words waht iam looking to do.
