VPN 3000 sockets error

Unanswered Question
Aug 22nd, 2007

Hi everybody:

I want to check why I am receiving those messages below. It could be because I have a high number of groups in my VPN? It is a 3015. I receive the same message with different groups.

2672 08/22/2007 19:35:25.950 SEV=4 AUTH/15 RPT=619

Server name =, type = RADIUS,

group = sbi-FtpExt0504, status = Not-in-service

2674 08/22/2007 19:35:26.050 SEV=3 IP/60 RPT=528

Unable to accept connection: no sockets available for task.

2675 08/22/2007 19:35:26.050 SEV=5 AUTH/2 RPT=528

Unable to open socket: server =, error = -9 ("ENOBUFS")


I have this problem too.

I think that the concentrator would only accept a max of 64 AUTH sockets, so you may be running out of sockets. This is usually because of high number of groups configured. Rebooting the device may get rid of this error but after some time the error may appear again. I think it will be good to reduce the groups and tunnels connected to the device.
