Both the fwsm and the Mac have packet capture facilities. Might be a good place to start to try and identify the issue. is the ping failure pattern random or exact (ie: every 5th packet dropped). Where are you sourcing the ping from ? Matthew
Actually i have done that and solved the issue... basicly it somebody was using Static IP address which duplicates with the HSRP address ... the switch considers this duplicate as an Active- Active situation and sends out GARP which for some reason effect Mac Machines and doesnt effect Windows based machines ... had a hard time but was very funny case. FWSM was only doing some shaping from the global policy applied but wasnt the one which was causing the problem .... appreciate your reply atleast somebody did hahahahaha
