PIX IP local pool for VPN

Unanswered Question

We have a PIX 506 that we use for remote access VPN. It's setup with a local IP address pool for handing out addresses to remote clients.

We've noticed that the addresses given out seem to increment over time as if they are not recycled back into the pool after the VPN session is finished.

The PIX is running 6.3(5).

Anyone else experienced this and is there a fix?

Shutdown and no shut the firewall outside interface through which IP's are assigned to clients.

Why is this something that needs fixed? The pool is there to be used, if there are too many addresses, then make the pool smaller. Once it uses all the addresses, it will start over again from the beginning.
