Configuring an IP Address

By default, we will use the DHCP to retrieve an IP Address on the interface. You will get the IP Address after login to the tool. To configure an IP Address, you can hit the below command:

sudo /home/paloalto/

This comes with a self-signed SSL certificate. You must access it using https://IP_ADDRESS.

Default Credentials of Palo Alto Networks Backup tool

The default credentials for both CLI and GUI are paloalto/paloalto. However, you can add the different users through the Web GUI.
