Is there a community edition of PAN OS?

I am looking for a legal copy of PAN-OS OVA is there a way I can download?

@fedoracore123 It is closed product and there is no community version.

If you have a valid Palo Alto support contract for VM series, then you can download the OVA from the support portal , but you will not be able to do much without licensing it.

The best option is to contact your Palo Alto sales representative (presuming that you company works with Palo Alto) and they can issue firewall VM evaluation license, which is full featured, but expires after 60 day.

Hello @fedoracore123 thank you for posting question. In addition to what @batd2 mentioned, there is an option to get a LAB VM license. For example this SKU: PAN-VM-100-PERP-BND2-LAB-1YR. With this license all features are included: Threat Prevention, DNS Security, PANDB URL Filtering, Global Protect, WildFire and SD-WAN. It is not for free, but it is an alternative if you need it just for lab.


Kind Regards
