L4 Transporter

Hello we have PA 5220

While I do not have any, usually a good Google search will find a few that are at low cost. Not sure why vendors charge so much to them :(. I've used 3rd party GBICS in a lot of devices and cant recall an issue when using them.


Good hunting!


I've been using fs.com optics without issues in our 5220s.

Modules from cisco also work without issues (at least in our PA-5220s and also PA-850s)

Hello! Could you please elaborate if your functioning modules on 850 boxes are SFP copper ones of Fiber ones, and if they are working OK with SFP/SFP+ ports from 9 to 12? Because I cannot use them with my batch of copper (Ethernet) SFPs, only on ports 5 to 8. Tested on two 850 boxes, to no avail. 


So with the PA-850 you can't mix SFP and SFP+ interfaces on 9-12, it's simply one or the other. So make sure that you are following that rule and you don't have an SFP+ port thrown in the mix at all. You'll also need to set the ports speed down to SFP if you aren't using SFP+, by default they will ship as 10Gbps SFP+ ports.


Using the 'show system setting ports-9-12-speed' command will tell you if it's set to SFP or SFP+ mode. If you need to modify that; you'll need to set the correct port type with the 'set system setting ports-9-12-speed sfp' command and then restart the system to get them to function as SFP ports.

I'm thinking @BPry is probably right with this.


I'm not sure if I understand correctly, on the PA-850, are you able to use 1G copper SFP on ports 5-8 (1G SFP only), and get link up?

Does anyone know how to view the sfp installed on an m500/600 panorama or log collector.


I have tried the below command and even put a wildcard but it only gives me hard drive info.

how system state filter sys.sX.pY.phy

I am using below SFP modules with PA-820, These are Gigabit Ethernet interface and working fine for me.
