Re: WLAN Problem 871W with ip inspect name half-open
To define the number of existing half-open sessions that will cause the software to start deleting half-open sessions, use the ip inspect max-incomplete high command in global configuration mode. Use the no form of this command to reset the threshold to the default of 500 half-open sessions.
ip inspect max-incomplete high number
no ip inspect max-incomplete high
An unusually high number of half-open sessions (either absolute or measured as the arrival rate) could indicate that a denial-of-service attack is occurring. For TCP, "half-open" means that the session has not reached the established state. For UDP, "half-open" means that the firewall has detected traffic from one direction only.
Context-based Access Control (CBAC) measures both the total number of existing half-open sessions and the rate of session establishment attempts. Both TCP and UDP half-open sessions are counted in the total number and rate measurements. Measurements are made once a minute.
When the number of existing half-open sessions rises above a threshold (the max-incomplete high number), the software will delete half-open sessions as required to accommodate new connection requests. The software will continue to delete half-open requests as necessary, until the number of existing half-open sessions drops below another threshold (the max-incomplete low number). The global value specified for this threshold applies to all TCP and UDP connections inspected by CBAC.
