DNS license expired.

L0 Member

Hi 

I have PA820 with image 10.0.

Will I still able use URL feature after DNS license expried?

Is true that once the license expired the PA820 next generation no longer function and it looks like it only work as standard firewall?

 

Thanks

The two licenses are not related:

Check your URL filtering license:

I also recommend to learn Palo Alto for you to take the Palo Alto free digital learning palo alto edu-110 and edu-120 (free registration to Palo Alto beacon is needed https://beacon.paloaltonetworks.com/student/catalog😞

Hello,

Yes the URL filter will still function and as long as your license is valid, it will still function as you have it setup. There are other DNS solutions available if you still wish to use a secure DNS provider instead of Palo Alto, however they work just like any other DNS solution, they dont integrate into the PAN.

I understand without the URL filter license and we won't get any new update from the DB.

My question was when the URL filter license expired, will the URL context filter feature still work with old DB?

 

Thanks
