it.Follow the steps for downloading and activating the agent software on the firewall as described in Host Agent Updates on the Portal.

on your web server.You should download the same image that you activated on the portal.From a browser, go to the Palo Alto Networks Software Updates site and Download the file to your computer.
- Publish the files to your web server.Upload the image file(s) to your web server.
- Redirect the end users to the web server.On the firewall hosting the portal, log in to the CLI and enter the following operational mode commands:
> set global-protect redirect on > set global-protect redirect location <path>where <path> is the path is the URL to the folder hosting the image, for example https://acme/GP.
