Firewall hitcount not increasing

Unanswered Question

Strange issue, i have rules applied on an ASA/FWSM for a connection. When i do a telnet to the port for this connection from the desired lan segment, i do get a response & i see the connection on the sesion table in firewall.

But apparently, the hit count on the specific ACL allowing this doesnt increase. It is constant on count zero.

Please advise.

Ok..just got it; there was another ace covering similar requirement above it.

Question again related to this. If the rule is to allow only forward connection on the firewall, how will the hit count increment be determined. like, when there is one forward connection being made & it passes through the firewall, will it result in the count being incremented by One? & what about the return packet for the same session, if this comes in back, would it result in another hit count ,even though its not a new session?

Thanks in advance!
