PA-220 not reaching Palo Alto

L1 Bithead

Our company was recently sold off and their IT department erased our firewalls leaving them reset back the to manufacturer’s configuration. I’ve built it back as much as possible, but I’m missing something. I’ve worked with other firewall devices, but PA is proving challenging. How do I configure it to connect to serverlist.paloaltonetworks.com, serverlist.urlcloud.paloaltonetworks.com, & updates.paloaltonetworks.com?

I tried to run the "Check Now" function under Device > Software, but all I get it..."Failed to check upgrade info due to generic communication error. Please check network connectivity and try again." Our internet connection is running through the FW, so this is confusing.

Hello,

I understand your freustration but we are here to help/assist! So what these updates use is what is known as service routes. By default, they are configured to user the MGMT interface tosend out and get these updates. I'm guessing the MGMT interface is setup on the network? Now make sure the service routes are set to use the MGMT interface,

Device->Setup->Services-> service route configuration. Here it will most likely be set to use Management Interface for all (this is  good).

Now assuming you can browse the internet from behind the PAN, make sure there is a policy to allow traffic from the MGMT interface out to the internet and make sure its not being decrypted or scanned. Also always set the logging to be at session end. This will make sure that the traffic will show up in the logs.

 

I know this is a lot to take in, however we are here to help with any and all questions you might have.

Hello,

Also not sure how far you have gotten in your rebuild. However here is a link to an article that goes through a zero day config. Its pretty secure so it could be more trouble then its worth at this point.

Also make sure to use secure DNS. Here is a video about it and why it should be used:

Hello,

Just remembered that since it got wiped, you'll need to get the licenses first after setting up the service routes.

Hey Otto, 

I'm still trying to learn my way around this device, which means I'm not sure where to go to find out where/if/how the traffic is going through the MGMT interface. I've spent hours looking for instructional videos to get the thing setup properly, but have found little. Port 2 connects to port 4 of our switch, port 3 connects to our ISP, and the MGMT interface connects to port 5 on the same switch.

 

Those switch interface configs are:

interface GigabitEthernet1/0/4
description PA-220 FW1 Eth0/2
switchport mode trunk
switchport nonegotiate
!
interface GigabitEthernet1/0/5
description PA-220 FW1 Mgmt interface
switchport mode access
switchport nonegotiate
spanning-tree portfast

Thank you,

Hello,

I would check and make sure those switch ports are on different vlans. e.g. one for external (untrust) and one for internal (trust). Looks like you have the core licenses still valid so you should be able to get to the internet from the management interface. Apply the AntiVirus update and install it first, then threat, URL, dns, wildfire, etc.

 

Hope this helps.

Hello,

Also make sure port 2 on your PAN is also setup as a trunk port.
