Re: PIX 501 Crash

Hi, before going to any kind of solution

>>ip address inside

are you really using such a small subnet or you have some router after this?

OK.... 'route inside 1 ', this actually kinda answeres my question up there....

are you seeing any specific repeated logs on you log server /pix firewall.

After how long are u getting booted?
