wildcard fqdn for destination in security policy, custom URL category

Hello folks,

 

I want to use a wildcard for a FQDN, e.g.    *.paloaltonetworks.com  

 

I want to use this as an object with a FQDN for the destination. 

 

I read in the following article I need to create a custom URL category, and use that in the "service/URL category" as part of the security policy. I was hoping to use this as a destination IP address but it looks like you cant do that, as you need to specify the FQDN as a URL catergory. My question is, what do I use for the destination IP address in the securty policy??? I am guessing it would be any IP adresses, and the limiting factor will be the URL category.

Any help appreciated.... we live in a complicated world! 

 

thanks

@Jedi_D,

You would either use the Destination address ANY, or you would utilize the wider IP Range/Cidr that you expect this service to be using. Sometimes you can setup the destination IP as a range, sometimes you'll only be able to use any. Depends on the service you actually wish to utilize.

I just use ANY as the FQDN lookup of the URL is the limiting factor.

 

If you wanted to prevent specific URLS on the domain then you would need a blocking blacklist rule with the specific URLS before the whitlisitng rule.
