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 -
