I apologize if this is not the right forum and appreciate if anyone could point me in the right direction.
I work in a small portuguese university. We have a ASA 5540 + IPS installed here. Unfortunately the guy that installed left without leaving any documentation so I'm a bit lost with this.
We have a 100Mbps FD link to the Internet. The inbound traffic (from the Internet) shows no limit (I can download a DVD iso file at 20Mbps) but the outbound traffic never goes beyond 100-150kbps (from our FTP server, for example or any other servers). We've tried several protocols (HTTP, FTP, SCP) from different servers and the result is always the same.
In between our server farm and the Internet there is only one 3750 switch and the ASA. Every connection is done at 1Gbps (except for the connection to the Internet that is made at 100Mbps FD). If we connect directly to the 3750 we can download things from our server at very high speeds. It's only when we test on the outside that things fail.
Our suspicions is that something is misconfigured on the ASA or the IPS. Can someone please offer a hint?
Thanks in advance for your attention
Glad to here that. I'm not positive, but it seems there was a bug related to autonegotiation between 7200 routers and other devices (maybe ASA), not sure which router do you use.
