    • Specifically for Magnifier, firewalls must be configured to send traffic logs to the logging service.
  • Make sure that you allow traffic to the full list of TCP ports and FQDNs that the Logging Service requires.
  • Palo Alto Networks firewalls are running PAN-OS 8.0.5 or later with the latest content version.
  • An internet gateway firewall has an interface configured in TAP mode.
