Explanation of acl log

Answered Question
Jul 17th, 2009

Hi,

In my acl log I saw the following, can someone explain what the (8/0) means:

Jul 16 17:15:04 CST: %SEC-6-IPACCESSLOGDP: list WAN-In denied icmp 10.4.5.10 -> 10.10.6.54 (8/0), 4 packets

Thanks

Dan

ICMP uses types and codes. Type 8 code 0 is an echo request ie. someone initiated a ping and your acl blocked it.

See this link for full list of ICMP code/types -
