I am trying to get my firewall on the network for the first time.

So far I cant ping the firewall from the network and I can't ping the gateway or any pcs from the firewall.  I have checked the arp table and I don't see any mac addresses there, so now I am starting to get concerned about the viability of this firewall.  However my experience with paloalto firewalls started with this device.  However my networking experience did not.  I am running on 6.01.  So obviously I would like to update the firewall so I can work with a more current version of PANOS.  Finding documentation for 6.01 has not been very fruitful.  


Yes @Alleria  that is a major road block.  Without licensing, there is very limited things that you can accomplish, short of just looking at the GUI.


What other questions/concerns can I address for you?

Thanks so much for replying I kinda figured that this was going to be a big issue.  I am waiting to here back from the guy that I bought it from to figure out what he wants to do.  He was offering me 60% back on the cost of the firewall but, now that I have this figured out I know that they need to work this out or give me my money back.
