Mcafee Application Object

L1 Bithead

Has anyone noticed the Mcafee Application Object is using the wrong ports, or do I have something wrong?

  • McAfee update protocol for distribution of signature/pattern updates. tcp/3025
  • Mcafee-update tcp/8801

These are all the ports Mcafee leverages (outside of backup updates)


L5 Sessionator

Applepedia does show that mcafee update uses tcp/3025 while the Mcaffe KB does not reference this port.

Are you facing any issues with this application when used in a rule ?

I would suggest opening a case with support attaching the packet-captures from the client and the Tech-Support File.


We ended up creating a custom app because the PA app has the wrong ports defined.  Will open up a case today.


Hi bilipipes,

I noticed today that the McAfee Application Object is still using the wrong ports. Did you open case last year? What was the response from Palo Alto?
