API: Transport connect failed

Unanswered Question
May 21st, 2010

Hello,

I've a Tacacs server ver. 3.2 running on a Win2000 SRV SP4 for outbound connections and a twin server for validate inbound connections (from Vpn Cli).

Sometimes service Tacacs seems hang (more often for outbound conns, but sometimes for inbound also), cpu's process CSTacas becomes over 90%, authentication/authorisation are not permitted and I should restart service to let Tacacs to work again.

Any ideas ? I post TCS.log if useful, thanks in advance

Hello,

This can happen due to,


-Corrupt registry

-SYN attack which overwhelmed the cstacacs service with half-open tcp connections.
-Single to single connect, acs getting out of threads, please disable single connect on acs and on aaa-client.
ACS-->Network configuration-->AAA-client--->Edit--->Single connect.

Please check this bug,

Hello Jagdeep,

"Single Connect" are still disabled, registry is not corrupted, so it's probably correct the "service overwhelmed" assuption...

In that case, the "bug" has not workaround about you ?

Thanks a lot!
