Netflix application rolled in to web-browsing?

L2 Linker

Last week I ran an ACC report for the top 25 applications.  Netflix was #3 (university environment, so it's to be expected).  Today, I ran the same report and Netflix (as an application) is no where to be found.  I launched Netflix on my computer to generate some traffic and I'm not seeing it (I waited 20 minutes to make sure the session was ended and logged).  I've tried searching, but I don't see any modifications to the application.  Any reason this isn't showing up any more?

Hi Brian,

Netflix uses SSL, hence without SSL-Decryption it would be identified as SSL,

And with SSL-decryption, it will be identified as Netflix.

Can you please generate one more connection to netflix and provide me output for "show session id <>".

Hi Bhelman,

We have a open bug/68271 which is opened for netflix being identified as web-browsing.

PANW is working on it. Let me know for addtional queries.

Hello Bhelman,

I have noticed quite a few incidences where netflix has been identified as web-browsing. Please make sure you are on the latest content version (463 being latest today) and test again as I see some improvements being reported. You may open a support case to follow the updates from bug 68271.
