What ports to open for KMS on an L7 Application based firewall?

KMS on 2012 R2 Server. Want to block ALL unnecessary traffic. I know it uses port 1688 but what application can I use/setup for a Palo Alto Firewall? Thought I'd ask the experts before "poking around" on the Palo!

Thanks!!

Although Palo Alto are L7 firewalls, they do not have L7 capabilities for all protocols.

For KMS, just open the port.

Please remember that a KMS server can only operate in a LAN environment, it can NOT be used in a situation where unauthorised clients can connect to it.
