I would like to check if there is a way to increase the timeout/keepalive of ports ? This was recommended
by a vendor but can we do this on the FWSM box ?
Example : To increase the timeout value for port 600-605 to above its default value whatever the default value is ?
Any suggestions/feedack is appreciated.
Yes, you definitely can by using the "set connection timeout" command with MPF.
access-list tcp-600-605-acl permit tcp any any range 600 605
match access-list tcp-600-605-acl
set connection timeout tcp
Here is the URL of the command for your reference:
Hope that helps.
