FWSM issue "session: Unable to tunnel to FW"

Hi Sir,

I have an FWSM installed in a Catalyst 6509 in module 4. The FWSM runs software version 2.3(3). The Catalyst 6509 runs CatOS 8.3(4) on Sup720.

Today I can't session into the blade from the Catalyst 6509 switch. I receive the following error:

Cat6509> (enable) sess 4

Trying FW-4...

session: Unable to tunnel to FW-4 (57)

How can I regain access to the FWSM? I did not configure the Admin context. So I have no idea which other ways I can gain access to the blade.

Please advise.

Thank you.

I session to the FWSM the next day and was able to access to it.

I guess it had locked my session the other day and freed it after certain time period.

Thank you.
