Is the command 'sysopt connection timewait' available on the FWSM 3.2? There is something written in the manual: [quote]
Catalyst 6500 Series Switch and Cisco 7600 Series Router Firewall Services Module Command Reference, 3.2 -- Whole Book PDF" available on the page you sent me to and go to page 6-86 we see the following.
sysopt connection timewait
Forces each TCP connection to linger in a shortened TIME_WAIT state after the final normal TCP close-down sequence
But on the other hand it's not listed as an available command in the list of commands...
So is it available? What are the options for configuring it? What is the impact for the network?
Our backupsoftware supplier asked us to lower it to 30 seconds or less.
On FWSM architecture, the connection is actually removed as soon as they are closed, hence the "sysopt connection timewait" actually serves no purpose, hence it is no longer available in the later version.
What is your software vendor actually trying to achieve? Do they want to close down the connection around 5-10 seconds after the TCP session is idle? If that is what they are trying to achieve, then you can implement it using the "set connection timeout" command advised earlier.
