fqdn - policies - wildcard


i want to place a policy with fqdn entrys completed with wildcards.


Our PCs have names like this:


Now i want to deny the internet traffic for every PC with the name LABPC*

But i also want to allow it to a special list of pcs.

I wanted to use a policy with fqdn entrys - but i'm not allowed.

When i want to do an address object, an error occurs: The value does not fit the validation

Can someone please help me out?

Thank you!

Re: fqdn - policies - wildcard

The FQDN in an address object (instead of IP address) will be resolved into an ip address during commit (and then refreshed every 20 minutes or so).

I would recommend you to avoid using FQDN in your address objects and instead redesign your network so your lab-pc's is on the same (or a few) /24 networks (or how large you need) and then set the security policy based on iprange. Perhaps in combination with userid (either through pan-agent or by captive portal).
