Re : How to increase a port keepalive time

Hi,

I would like to check if there is a way to increase the timeout/keepalive of ports ? This was recommended
by a vendor but can we do this on the FWSM box ?

Example : To increase the timeout value for port 600-605 to above its default value whatever the default value is ?


Any suggestions/feedack is appreciated.

Cheers,
-SN-

Re: Re : How to increase a port keepalive time

Yes, you definitely can by using the "set connection timeout" command with MPF.

Example:

access-list tcp-600-605-acl permit tcp any any range 600 605

class-map tcp-600-605-class

     match access-list tcp-600-605-acl

policy-map tcp-600-605-policy

     class tcp-600-605-class

          set connection timeout tcp

Here is the URL of the command for your reference:

Hope that helps.
