Embryonic Connection Limits and Embryonic Connection Timeouts in FWSM
I noticed in the FWSM's configuration guide that the number of embryonic connection limits can be configured using using static nat translations. I also noticed that the timeouts for embryonic connections can be configured using Modular Policy Framework. Without explicitly configuring a limit to the number of embryonic connections (through static nat statements), does the FWSM have a threshold for the number of embryonic connections that it will allow before taking action? Is it safe to assume that embryonic connections will timeout in 20 seconds if no modular policy framework policy was explicitly configured to set the embryonic connection timeout limit in the FWSM?
