Someone knows the problem with the debugs!

Re: PIX debug problem

"debug packet" can easily overwhelm a pix in

production. You don't want to run it unless this

is for debugging purposes with minimal traffic.

Yes, I've seen it crash the pix.

Re: PIX debug problem

Hi Wen,

i's like that, that the debug each package is analyzed and only the installed IP-packet ar displayed.

Re: PIX debug problem

Once you give the debug commands to the pix, the pix will continue to generate the debug messages on the it would be impossible to work with the console .One must telnet to the pix from a PC and give "undebugg all" command.I think this wiuld stop the pix from crash.
