PAN application for Ironport updates

Not applicable


I have an Ironport behind my PAN. In the logs, I can see it going toward the Cisco update server.

Nevertheless, the application is sometimes "web-browsing" and sometimes "http-video".


Do you meet the same behavior?

Hello Guillaume,

I don't see an application for ironport in my lab device. Do you have one, or have you manually created one? Often times applications use various protocols such as web-browsing, and then they transition into something else. This may be what you're seeing.

I'd suggest getting with your Palo Alto sales engineer and request an application to be created for this traffic as I don't currently see one. At that point we'll be able to identify it correctly.

Until then, you can create a service based rule using the ports needed for ironport if you'd like.


Hello Jason,

I don't have application. That might be why the flux is seen as web-browsing or http-video.

If you see only "web-browsing" in your lab, it might be better to not allow "http-video".
