How to find application in Palo Alto (by tcp/udp ports)

L3 Networker


I am working on a migration from Check Point to Palo Alto. We used that PA Migration Tool for CP rules into PA.

The main problem is all CP rules are based on services and we want to transform them into PA applications... BUT, the PA apps tool (applipedia) doesnt show the apps by ports...

SOmetimes is hard to uderstand the name of PA applications... and also we would like to know if there is a method to find PA application using ports numbers...

for example:

what is the PA Application name for service using TCP 5757 ?

right now we are searching on internet those aplications then relating with PA apps...

is there any easy way easy to do that ?

thanks in advance!!


Thanks mikand for the well researched and informative post... I know I was "baiting" a bit by saying that PAN claims to be "port agnostic," and you provided the great response I was hoping to see Smiley Happy
