Palo Alto Test Policy Matches

Test a security policy rule:

test security-policy-match application twitter-posting source-user cordero\kcordero destination 98.2.144.22 destination-port 80 source 10.200.11.23 protocol 6


Test an Authentication policy rule:

test authentication-policy-match from trust to untrust source 192.168.10.10 destination 98.2.144.22

Test a Decryption policy rule:

test decryption-policy-match category financial-services from trust source 10.200.11.23 destination 98.2.144.22
