Whitelisting IP Addresses

L0 Member

I am trying to whitelist some IP addresses. I added the IPs to our allow policy in the URL category section. Is there anything else that I should be doing? The purpose of this is to allow our printer providers servers so our printers can communicate with their servers. Thank you!

Hi @Evan-Amerio 

 

Are you referring to the destination address field and not URL category?

If you are trying to allow just the IP addresses, you can add the IPs to the destination address column similar to what is see in the screenshot instead of the URL Category. URL category is manly used for the predefined URLs categories, custom URL categories, to match the website URL trying to be accessed.

If you have multiple IPs, you can leverage the EDL feature on PaloAlto as well. Refer below links to understand EDL.
