I thought there was a limited version of wildfire that you could use for PE files. But it isn't working, I do a test registration and it fails. Is there something that is missing in the instruction that I have


According to TAC you configure it the same way that you do the licensed version but you don't add the license. The catch is that there are only certain types of files that it will do and PE files are one of them

Trying to test my file block profile using this link

I created a file blocking profile for PE files set to continue and forward. I went to the link and ran the fake file and nothing happened. There is nothing in the wildfire submission, data filtering or threat logs under the monitoring tab. Any suggestions?

Do you have ssl decryption enabled? I would try the non-ssl version of the test PE file.


I hope that is what you are asking about.

Hello Steve,

The 'limited' version is configured the same, you just dont perform the dynamic updates since you dont have the license. I hope that was what you were asking about.



That is the link that I went too to test the wildfire but I was not given an option of non encrypted

Didn't you say you were using the limited version as well? Did you have to select the benign file setting?



The benign setting allows for more reporting as this will also generate logs for any files that were uploaded and diagnosed as benign, but is not a necessary setting to enable the unlicensed version of WildFire.

It may come in handy when setting up WildFire for the first time to generate reports sooner, as waiting around for a malicious file can take a while.

I have it all configured and I opened the wildfire test file on a test pc and nothing is showing up in the PA wildfire submissions or data filtering logs so I don't know if its really working



Did you make sure to enable ssl decryption, and is this reflected in the session details: 



you may need to allow the management interface of your device access out to the internet or finetune any serviceroutes you have set to allow the management plane to upload files to the cloud


here's a couple of commands you can use to verify everything is functioning as expected:



show wildfire status
show wildfire statistics
show wildfire cloud-info

Doesn't it require a license to do decryption? Here are the results of running the commands you suggested-
