I had a problem when i deleted an access-list. The GUI interface is deleting me de route associate whith the IP invoved in the access-list. This is the output in my syslog server when i deleted the ACL:

Dec 5 16:24:21 : %PIX-5-111008: User 'jvega' executed the 'no route genesis 1' command.

Dec 5 16:24:21 : %PIX-5-111008: User 'jvega' executed the 'no access-list Desa_access_in extended permit tcp host eq 21' command.

Thank's for your help

No, it is expected result. If you remove any access-list especially which was created to allow/permit traffic from particular destination, then the basic characterisitic of firewall comes into effect that is by default all the traffic from the outside networs blocked.

Cisco might label it a feature, but we users call it a bug. All Cisco's GUI configuration tools have similar problems... they get a little sloppy about deletions and changes. As a general rule, don't use a GUI for simple tasks. And always inspect what the tool wants to send to your router *before* it send it.

(In Cisco's defense, the tools usually warn you when it's going to do far more than you just asked it to.)

Ok, thank's for your are right, this is a bug and the GUI interface is the problem. When i use CLI's i never have problems. May be the bug that i am hitting is CSCsg05431 bug id.
