NTP problem on PIX 515E with 8.0(4)16

Unanswered Question
Jan 12th, 2009

I upgraded IOS on PIX 515E from ASA image 7.2(4) to PIX image 8.0(4)16. NTP statement disappeared. I tried to add NTP statement back, but got the following error messages:

Firewall(config)# ntp server 10.3.1.3

vPif_getVpif: bad vPifNum(0xffff) from B6F781 from 560BE7

UDP: ERROR - socket <unknown> 31488 in used

ERROR: Could not open udp/65535/123 for NTP

ERROR: failed to initialize NTP process

How can I resolve this problem? Thank you in advance.

I have this problem too.

Interestingly, I don't have NTP problem on another 515E with the same code (8.0(4)16) on it. Any thoughts?

Hmm thats not a good thing. Then it seems that it should not be the pix ios problem.

What about u r network any acl blocking port for NTP 123 ?

Any anything from the network side where the ntp server is configued is blocking this ip ?

that would be my only thoughts now

PIX is getting bad...
