PAN DB URL filtering issue.

L3 Networker

Dear all,


One of my customer PAN DB License expired and we try to block all Youtube videos excluding some the vidoes links in Youtube. 


My query here is, whether if the device without a valid PAN DB Licence we will be able to acheive the above requirement to be configured. 


Please let me know if you have any questions. And eagerly waiting for a response. Thanks in advance !!


Best Regards,

Your whitelisting and such should all continue to function, but I imagine that you are blocking the URL-Category 'streaming-media' to actually get this to work? If that's the case you simply won't get any additional updates from PAN and your firewall will continue to utilize what it already has pulled down.

Now if this is the primary use case for the license you can get around this limitation by making a custom URL Category and building the block and associated whitelist entries within the custom category, and that will function perfectly fine regardless of license status.
