FWSM Stops Forwarding .. corrupting XLATES?

Unanswered Question
Jul 15th, 2009

I have a FWSM that seperates various segments on the network. For some reason at times connectivity to some hosts stops without any indication why.

I had done some checking and discovered that there seems to be a corrupt XLATE created at times, which results in the FWSM not forwarding traffic properly.


FWSM1# sh xlate detail | incl FS01

> NAT from wan:FS01 to inside:FS01 flags Ii

> NAT from wan:FS01 to wan:FS01 flags Ii



We have extended OSPF onto the FWSM. What I noticed this morning was that the routing table changed .. probably around the time the fault was reported.

As can be seen in the extract above ther eis a translation from one interface for FS01 back to the same interface for that same server.

Have tried almost all versions of FWSM code, does not make any difference.

Any Ideas?

Pls. issue "sh run same"

remove "same-security-traffic permit intra-interface"

This will stop these incorrect X-lates from getting created.

Hopefully you do not need that line. You only need that line if you have a need to U-Turn traffic out the same interface where the packet was received on.
