PIX timeouts for specific tcp ports

Hi, I have a PIX 525 running vers 6.3(1) and

would like to disable timeouts for certain

tcp connections passing through the PIX. One

of which is ssh. Looks to me like the only

way to do this is to set "timeout conn 0:0:0"

which disables timeouts for all tcp connections.

Anyone know a better way to disable port 22 timeouts? Also, if I were to use "timeout conn 0:0:0" is there any danger in filling the connection table or is it a FIFO kind of deal?



Re: PIX timeouts for specific tcp ports

If you are trying to specify the duration that a ssh session can be idle before being disconnected, you can use the ssh timeout command. I'm not usre if you can use the timeout conn command to timeout ssh session only.

Re: PIX timeouts for specific tcp ports

That doc describes ssh connections to the pix itself. I'm looking for a way to disable the

idle timeouts for connections through the PIX,

from outside clients to inside servers.
