Pix internal error

My pix started having communication errors then quit talking. If you cold-boot, it will work for about 10minutes. The error that I received twice during boot was as follows:: " An internal error occured, specifically a programming assertion was violated.

assertion "bp->rptr >=bp->base && bp->wptr <= bp->limit" failed: file "block.c"

Any ideas? I replaced one nic, and have 3 on order tomorrow, pse reply - william.collins@whitehatmgmt.com

Re: Pix internal error

The error message could mean that PIX has detected a block with bad values in it, indicating a memory corruption occured.

Try removing the memory module and replace it with a standard module and see if it works.

You could also try re-seating the memory and interface cards before proceeding with memory upgrade.

Re: Pix internal error

Thanks for the reply, That is what I had quessed, so I had removed the cards and memory, shined up the contacts, and re-installed. So far so good. Its working for now.

Thanks again for the reply
