Did someone ever encounter PIX problem when the pix configured for the syslog server with tcp port ?
I encountered this problem when I configured the pix for syslog server with tcp port..the command is logging host <in_if> <host_ip> [tcp/port_number].
Actually there is no problem when the syslog server was up. But when I shut down the server..the pix suddenly can not route packet from inside to outside..but if I did pinging from pix to outside and inside are ok..only if I pinged from inside network, servers which are in inside network, the packets are stopped at pix. the pix image version is 5.1(2). is there any bugs on that version ??
In PIX Software versions 4.3.X and later, you can also do TCP syslog. PFSS supports this; most other syslog servers do not support it without reconfiguration. The command to enable PIX to do PFSS TCP logging is:
logging host #.#.#.# tcp 1740
Note: Because this traffic is TCP (that is, with acknowledgments), if the PFSS goes down, traffic through the PIX will stop; for that reason, the tcp syslog command should not be implemented unless you need this kind of functionality! UDP/514 syslogging does not have this effect.
