PA-200 - BrightCloud URL Filtering Updates

Not applicable

Hi There,

Just wondering if someone can help with a question regarding the BrightCloud URL Filtering updates. I updated the BrightCloud URL Filtering license on a PA-200 however when I try and download the URL database I keep getting an error trying to download it. The PA-200 does have internet access and services have been configured to download the updates via an internet accessible interface.

Would there be something else I need to enable for updates to be downloadable?

Second, I would check and see the update URL. is what it should be set to.  If that does not work, then only to test, you can try

I hope this helps.

If dns is ok and traffic allow to go on internet, try to change download location (from EMEA to APAC). Got same issue yesterday and solved like that.

Hope help.
