I have setup two pix 501 running OS version 6.3(5) with a 10 user license between two offices conencted via DSL. Traffic flows both ways as intended. However, occasionaly I have a problem where I cannot remote onto any machine at the remote office from my main office using various methods (remote desktop, vnc, pcanywhere, etc) or access network shares. I can ping these machines and I do receive replies. Why would icmp work and not anything else? The only way I have found to restore the connection is to reboot (reload) the pix at my main office. As soon as it comes back up the connections work. Could this be a licensing issue as I have only 10 licenses. When I do sh conn from the console it shows 23 in use 43 most used on the pix at my office and 27 in use 71 most used at the remote office. Does this indicate that I am over the limit? Could this be my problem. I need to get this fixed asap as rebooting the pix kicks the remote users off for a few seconds. Are their any other commands I can use to figure out the problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated
I have this problem too.
