How to see a specific incoming IP

Hello, I am new to Palo Alto Firewalls still learning. I as asked to see a specific IP that is attempting to connect to my FW. Can someone please point me in the direction to see an incoming IP? I see on the GUI "Monitoring" and "ACC" tabs. Is there Training Material or commands that show how?

you have a few options but for me I just use the monitor tab and select "traffic" from the LH side.

click on any source IP in the GUI, this will auto fill the search bar above, modify this to your required IP and click on the apply filter arrow to the right.

 

you need to be aware that traffic will only appear in the monitor tab if logging is set in the policies.

if there is no policy for the attempted connection then you will need to override the default interzone policy and set logging to session start.

 

you can also create deny all policies specific to interfaces/services etc.(with logging enabled) but be careful as you could be setting up your own denial of service if not careful.

Awesome information my friend! I used this in the "Monitor" tab and input this cmd " (addr.src in X.X.X.X) I did not see anything and then I used an IP that is in use and I was able to see all the traffic. Thanks for your help!
