Hi Guys,

we are trying to have database synchronization between 2 databases each one of them is behind a PIX firewall.

The SQLnet Protocol Inspection is enabled on both firewalls but still connections are being dropped after being able to connect successfully to port 1521.

The IOS version on the PIX Firewalls are the following :

PIX Version 7.2(2)

PIX Version 8.0(2)

is there any well known bug in the above versions that affect the SQLNET  protocol ?

Thanks in advance

If you can do a test and permit IP between both IPs doing the synchronization at the moment and it works fine, then you know it's a problem with the SQLnet inspection on the Firewalls.

This test is just to make sure that the problem is no where else but caused by the inspection of the Firewalls and we can further check it out.

Hi Jean,

Do you see this error logged on the firewall:

%ASA-6-302014: Teardown TCP connection...Flow closed by inspection

If you see this error, you may try disabling sqlnet inspection.
