Component
Description
1
Screw-on ground point
Use this ground point to connect the firewall to earth ground (ground cable not included).
2
DC power and ground inputs
Use the DC input terminal block to connect DC power to the firewall. The terminal block is included in the accessories kit and is labeled A+, A-, B+, and B-.
The two inputs to the right of the four DC power inputs are ground inputs (use only one) that you can use in place of the screw-on ground point on the firewall (see Connect Power to a PA-220R Firewall).
3
Ethernet ports 1 through 6
Six RJ-45 10Mbps/100Mbps/1000Mbps ports for network traffic. You can set the link speed and duplex or choose auto-negotiate for each port. These ports also have built-in surge protection.
4
SFP ports 7 and 8
Two SFP (1Gbps) ports for network traffic.
These ports also support 100Base-FX.
5
MGT port
Use this Ethernet 10Mbps/100Mbps/1000Mbps port to access the management web interface and perform administrative tasks. The firewall also uses this port for management services, such as retrieving licenses and updating the threat and application signatures.
6
CONSOLE port (RJ-45)
Use this port to connect a management computer to the firewall using a 9-pin serial-to-RJ-45 cable and terminal emulation software.
The console connection provides access to firewall boot messages, the Maintenance Recovery Tool (MRT), and the command line interface (CLI).
If your management computer does not have a serial port, use a USB-to-serial converter.
Use the following settings to configure your terminal emulation software to connect to the console port:
  • Data rate: 9600
  • Data bits: 8
  • Parity: None
  • Stop bits: 1
  • Flow control: None
7
USB
A USB port that accepts a USB flash drive with a bootstrap bundle (PAN-OS configuration).
Bootstrapping speeds up the process of configuring and licensing the firewall to make it operational on the network with or without internet access.
8
CONSOLE port (Micro USB)
Use this port to connect a management computer to the firewall using a standard Type-A USB-to-micro USB cable.
The console connection provides access to firewall boot messages, the Maintenance Recovery Tool (MRT), and the command line interface (CLI).
Refer to the Micro USB Console Port page for more information and to download the Windows driver or to learn how to connect from a Mac computer.
9
LED status indicators
Five LEDs that indicate the status of the firewall hardware components (see PA-220R Status LEDs).
