Connection time out questions.

I have a pix 515e running 7.1(2)7.

I had been getting connection time out after 5 hours but don't know where the 5 hours come from as the default setting is 3 hours and had not been changed.

** Default timeout on Pix firewall.

PIX# sh run timeout

timeout xlate 3:00:00

timeout conn 3:00:00 half-closed 0:10:00 udp 0:02:00 icmp 0:00:02

timeout sunrpc 0:10:00 h323 0:05:00 h225 1:00:00 mgcp 0:05:00

timeout mgcp-pat 0:05:00 sip 0:30:00 sip_media 0:02:00

timeout uauth 0:05:00 absolute

** Firewall log showed connection tear down after 5 hours.

Re: Connection time out questions.

The idle timeout mean that there is no activity at all for 3 hrs.

But connection can be open for more that 3 hours if there is still activity.
