Applications within SOCKS

When deploying a Palo Alto inline between a client and a SOCKS proxy that client uses, will it be able to recognize the applications accessed over the SOCKS Proxy? Or will you only see the SOCKS application being used by that client?

Hi Stijin,

As per my knowledge the application will not be decoded over socks. So it will just show up as Socks only. Please let me know if this helps.

Thank you
