Pix 506 Connectivity Issue

We have a Pix 506 that has a VPN connection to a PIX 520. There is one client on the 520 side that loses the ability to connect to the data server on the 506 side of the network. All other hosts can communicate accross. If we remote to a pc on the 506 side and ping the client that cannot connect, the client can instantly connect and will work for a couple weeks. There is no access lists that prevent traffic. The client does not have any problems with any other network resource. Is this a problem with the Pix or the client configuration?

Re: Pix 506 Connectivity Issue

It is difficult to troubleshoot. Unless you provide the version, the config, the source and destination IP addresses, the concerned ports, the syslog messages.

So what you are saying is that once the client looses the ability to connect to the server, the only way to restore it back is to remote connect to a pc on 506's site and ping back the client.
