Cisco Firewall Module 6509

Hi there,

I'm encountering a problem uploading a file when passing through the firewall module using a .NET application. Without passing through the firewall module, it only takes about 3 seconds for a 1mb file, however when passing through the firewall module, it takes around 1 minute or more. What settings can be done to resolve this issue?

The file upload is done via a .NET 2.0 desktop application, and uploading to the server, which is running on IIS port 80.

Hi Bro

I don't think this is a FWSM issue, but then again you never know :-) There could be few possibilities,

a) Is there QOS / MFP configured in your FWSM context?

b) Is your FWSM overloaded e.g. CPU/Memory Utilization?

c) How big are these uploaded files (>100Mb)? This is because the FWSM backplane is 5.5Gbps.
