PIX issue with Netscape LDAP


I am having a network in which we have 6 vlans (created on a Cisco Cat4006 switch). We r using PIX 525 (version 6.0(1))to forward between these 6 segments using NAT 0.

I have my Primary LDAP (directory server) on one segment and a Secondary LDAP on another segment. The primary & secondary sync with each other when there is a change in the database. This involves lot of data transmission between them.

The problem is the directory synchronisation happens normally for sometime but suddenly it stops. It has been found that there is no problem with the directory servers as they give an error of timeout waiting for each other.

Does PIX firewall end sessions erratically ?

I request anyone who has faced a similar problem to help me in solving this issue.
