It will provide still based on your others criterias but not based on the destination port.

Re: Application vs Services

the application and service fields are mutually inclusive (like an AND operation)

if you have

apps web-browsing, telnet , ping 

service 8020

this means the applications must match web-browsing or telnet  or ping AND their destination port must be 8020.

so if you add ping in a policy with a service set to a specific port, ping will fail as it can not match the destination port. any application not matching the destination port of 8020 will also fail


you'll need to create separate policies so ping can be set to application-default (because, if ping does match a port, something is terribly wrong)
