Need to know this--- when we plug the Laptop on Management port and assign it ip 192.168.1.3 we can then access web gui 192.168.1.1 how?
normally management port is up when you connect that it to switch that make sense to me.
but here it is connected to PC with IP 192.168.1.3
Here both ends of the cable are connected to PC and PA management port.
Hope my question makes sense.

This works on pretty much any device, not specific to PAN. The devices simply communicate directly, they don't need a switch to do so.
It's a two node network simple as that, no more to it.
Only when you need 3 or more nodes do you require a "Concentrator" be that a HUB or SWITCH, both of which just forward packets one more effifiently than the other.
If you use "10Base-2" rather than "10xxBase-T" you don't even need a Hub/Switch to connect multiple PC's together. But that's in the "Good Old Days"
