Hi @vongsackda,


How about this :


>  configure
#  set deviceconfig setting ctd skip-block-http-range no
#  commit

When skip-block-http-range is set to no, any time the Palo Alto Networks firewall sees an HTTP client request for a file with a range request in the header (for example, when resuming a file download), the firewall intercepts it and mimics a server rejecting the range request feature. This tells the client to start from the beginning of the file.


Note: This is global feature to turn on and off which can impact legitimate applications.


Also explained in this article : How-to-Block-Multi-thread-HTTP-Downloads


Cheers !

Hi @vongsackda,


It's been 5 months since the last reply on this :)

We'll need a little more info than that to work with.

Can you add some more details ?


Note : I've noticed that the proposed CLI from the previous comment isn't available on all platforms.


For example :

This command isn't available on a PA-200 running PAN-OS 8.1.1

This command IS available on a PA-5220 running PAN-OS 8.0.8
