Content Delivery Network Infrastructure for Dynamic Updates
Palo Alto Networks maintains a Content Delivery Network (CDN) infrastructure for delivering content updates to the Palo Alto Networks firewalls. The firewalls access the web resources in the CDN to perform various App-ID and Content-ID functions. For enabling and scheduling the content updates, see Install Content and Software Updates.
The following table lists the web resources that the firewall accesses for a feature or application:
Static Addresses (If a static server is required)

Static IP addresses are not available. However, you can manually resolve a URL to an IP address and allow access to the regional server IP address.
