Palo Alto with Ansible

Hi, I am trying to configure palo alto with ansible. the normal ping and ssh connection is fine but the "ansible -m ping all" command is returning error that the "ssh authentication failed". How is that possible, if the normal ssh is working fine. Please tell the steps to configure ansible with palo alto or any supporting docs. Thanks

Password less login into my PAN firewall from the centos workstation works ok.



But when I use ansible adhoc command like "ansible all -m ping"  or even execute a play-book, the process hangs.

I have to break with Ctrl+C

Ansible , paramiko etc is up to date.

panos module is also available to use.
