I have a request from some of our internal app developers who have WBI and MQ sessions across DMZ domains to expand the timeout values on the firewall for their apps. As far as I can tell, the timeout values are global for the entire firewall TCP/IP stack. Does anyone know of a way I can make timeouts longer for a specific IP or port in the rules? Or, as I have already told my developers, this isn't possible :-)

Hi Toby

On 6.x you are right the timeouts are global.

However i believe on 7.x you can use a class map for particular traffic and apply the timeout to that class rather than globally across the whole firewall. Have a look at the attached config doc for ASA Modular Policy Framework.

Jon ... thanks for the link. It looks promising.

We're going to do some experimenting and see how it goes.
