Need Help - RIP pkt failed from IP_addrr

This message suddenly appeared in the PIX logs and the PIX seems to be rejecting RIP2 updates from a router. Hence connectivity to certain networks have been lost.

Curiously, everything was fine before the message appeared and in fact there were no config updates that were done to either PIX or the router.

Any clues on what causes this problem and how to fix it ... Many thanks.

Re: Need Help - RIP pkt failed from IP_addrr

Could you verify if the error mesage is "%PIX-1-107002". If that is true, this could mean a lot of things... a bug, a malformed entry, an attack or a non standard packet format. The fact that all was well and this error started appearing suddenly, makes the likelihood of an IOS error likely. Try reloading the IOS on your boxes.. especially the one from which the update is expected to be coming. You should probably also verify that the RIP version is consistant throughout.

Tks for the reply.

Yes indeed it is error 107002. We did the usual reboot of routers and the

pix (even the switch)- and the error message kept reappearing. Disabling RIP and using static routes in the PIX has eliminated the problem or at least the error message (our vendor in fact suggested that this is more secure).

But we are still puzzled about such an occurence as there were no version

upgrades on the IOSes and RIPv2 is also consistent across. When using DEBUG RIP / SH ROUTE - it indeed showed that the pix was not updating its routing table. All neighboring external networks are "friendly" and we are using IOS 12.0 for the routers and Cisco Pix 6.2(2). The network traffic to the PIX is minimal so we ruled out any overloading.

Any insights/comments will surely be useful. Tks and regards.
