Changing Palo Alto Networks PAN-OS system settings

In addition to the common system settings you can change for any type of system, there are a few Palo-Alto Networks PAN-OS system settings. For example, you can use System Settings to update the following types of information after adding a system:

  • Change the session type or port number for remote connections

    You can manually select secure shell or remote desktop and change the port number for remote sessions. If you don’t specify a session type and port, the secure shell client and port 22 are used by default.

  • Select a system time zone

    You can manually select the time zone you want to use for any system. If you don’t specify a time zone, the local time zone of the system is used by default.

  • Account Management Settings

    For password management, port 443 is used. If you changed the port assignment used for password management, you need to manually set the Management Port field to match the setting of the PAN-OS system. Contact Palo Alto Networks Support if you want to change the port setting.
