I am using PA 3020 firewall and will need to monitor traffic east to west and configured internally.

 

Any one will provide me process how to configured that will be great help.

How is the firewall currently deployed? How many interfaces? Zones? 

 

Which ones are east west, what about north south? 


In general the configuration portion is meant to be smooth. After the device is registered and you have licenses installed, you would go to the network tab, zones, and add your names of east/west zones (DMZ, Core, Guest, etc)

 

You would attach those zones to interfaces (e.g. eth1/1 is WAN, eth 2/1 is LAN, eth 1/2 is DMZ, etc)

 

You then write policies allowing traffic to flow between zones in the policies tab (e.g. from zone LAN to zone Core allow smb)
