EDL HTTP response code said error



I am facing an issue where the External Dynamic List shows an error when tested by cli command "request system External-list show", the error is "HTTP response code said error", but whem the list is tested from any other device it is accessable and working fine, this list is a Domain list, and I dont think it is a bug as the list is not working on two different releases of 7.1.X.

Has anyone experienced this error befors, is it related to the firewall or the network, or is it from the server hosting the list.


Thanks a lot

It is most likely the site itself. A way to confirm it would be to set up your own server and mirror the list from the original source. Point the firewall at your own server for the EDL source instead. An extra benefit is that you could confirm if the site is ever delivering an error to your server as well by looking at your logs.


I've seen a 503 before (service unavailable) which can commonly happen if the site is overloaded temporarily. If the site is also using a provider like Cloudflare, sometimes those sites can deliver a Captcha page if it sees bot-like activity.

Thank you for the reply @gwesson,


It is actually a local server, the user has also replaced it but the error is still there could it be something in the configuration of the server, or could it be a bug, I still need to confirm if it is happening on one PANOS or multiple.


Thanks a lot
