PIX 515 5.2(3) and Win2k PPTP problems...

Hi all, this is the second day of our PIX's use as a VPN gateway. Until last night around 11:30, all was well, but since then, we get varying error messages on win2k clients (that's all we're using). Today, I inspected the syslog files and noticed lines with errors related to vpdn, similar to this one (ip addresses dependent on client machine):

4/5/02, 11:32:14 AM, [], LOCAL4, ERROR, %PIX-3-213002: PPTP tunnel hashtable insert failed, peer = XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX

A tunnel seems to begin to be established, but the tunnel state gets stuck:

PPTP Tunnel Information (Total tunnels=1 sessions=0)

Tunnel id 105, remote id is 105, 0 active sessions

Tunnel state is wt-sccrq, time since event change 145529 secs

remote Internet Address XX.XX.XX.248, port 1723

Local Internet Address XX.XX.XX.2, port 1723

0 packets sent, 0 received, 0 bytes sent, 0 received

I haven't been able to find much out, except that for that particular error message (%PIX-3-213002), I am directed to "contact customer support". Has anyone seen this behavior before, and if so, how do I fix it for good.

Looks like bug: CSCdu33543, upgrade the PIX code to 5.2.6.
