Acess-list issue on Cisco Router 3945

Hi All,

I reported a really strange issue on a Cisco Router 3945. Here below info about release software used:

IOS:C3900-UNIVERSALK9-M, Version 15.2(2)T, Release software (fc1)

ROM: System Bootstrap, Version 15.0(1r)M13, release software (fc1)

System image file: "flash0:c3900-universalk9-mz.SPA.152-2.T.bin"

Please look at a brief extract of router running configuration file:

"

ip access list extended 180

permit ip any any

interface fastethernet 0/0/1

ip access-group 180 in

"

It’s an easy configuration of Extended ACL and the application on an Ethernet interface. The expected result is:

- The interface works properly (because access list is permitting every kind of data traffic in input)

- Checking “show access-list 180”, the counter of matched packets increments for all the packets that are forwarded inside the fa0/0/1.

But actually the Fastethernet 0/0/1 drops all the packets as if all the packets don’t match with access list (And this behavior is really incredible). The interface couldn't be used anymore because any kind of data traffic is denied.

I hope I made myself clear with the explanation of that issue.

Thank you

Acess-list issue on Cisco Router 3945

Interface fastethernet0/0/1 does not look to me like one of the built in interfaces for the 3945. Can you tell us about this interface and what it is? Perhaps it would also help if you would post the output of show version and of show ip interface brief.

I am wondering if there are some restrictions on this interface, such as its being a layer 2 switching interface rather than a layer 3 interface?

Acess-list issue on Cisco Router 3945

Your interface is administratively down? Is this right? Or was it just at the time when you made the output of the commands.

Thank you for the additional information which I requested. It is helpful to know that the interface is part of HWIC-2FE. This confirms that it should operate as a normal layer 3 interface and should do normal processing of access lists. And that makes this issue more puzzling.

If you want to investigate this further I would suggest to re-configure the access list and apply it to the interface. After you have run some traffic and observe the problem is still happening then post the output of show run interface fast0/0/1, the output of show ip interface fast0/0/1, and of show access list.

An additional question would be whether you would experience the same problem on the interface fast0/0/0 and on any of the built in Gig interfaces? I am wondering if it might be something related to the HWIC-2FE?

Does this interface forward the traffic properly without this access-list applied?

Dear Vasileios,

the interface is working properly without the access-list applied.

Thank you

Claudio

Acess-list issue on Cisco Router 3945

Hi Claudio,

I have a few comments from your show ip interface outputs.

It is stated the next for the fa0/1/1 interface.

Outgoing access list is not set

Inbound access list is not set

Did you have apply the access-list before this show command?

I also noticed a policy routing have been applied to the show ip interface

Policy routing is enabled, using route map Turksat

Could possibly cause a confilict with the routing via this interface?

Finally, could you try to also log the packets with the access-list and check these captured packets.

permit ip any any log

Do you have any errors to this interface?

Attention, if you use this router to a production network and the interface has high traffic utilization.

This is a very good observation that Polic Based Routing is applied to the interface. We certainly need to know what is in the configuration of PBR.

Acess-list issue on Cisco Router 3945

Dear all,

I tried to apply the access-list also to other interfaces (on board as gi0/1 or in another HWIC-2FE as fa0/1/0) but the issue persist.

Then, I erased the PBR configuration and the problem persist again.

Here below I report "show ip int fa0/0/1", "show in fa0/0/1" and "show access-list 180" after applying the access-list in the fa0/0/1 interface:

Dear Marko,

I confirm that value. Even if I disable the access-list applied in that interface and there is no data traffic through it the txload is 255/255. I found that value not only in fa0/0/1 interface but in all the interfaces of that router.

Claudio

Acess-list issue on Cisco Router 3945

Hi Claudio,

I  aslo noticed that you have the next bitrates to this interface

5 minute input rate 42000 bits/sec, 33 packets/sec

5 minute output rate 4000 bits/sec, 7 packets/sec

I recommend you to check the process of the router and check the processes with high value

sh proc cpu sorted

sh proc cpu history

Provide the output.

Try to capture these packets with debug ip packet AL, access-list which log packets or even better with Wireshark.

It is needed to find out what are these packets and why are produced

Acess-list issue on Cisco Router 3945

Dear all,

I solved that issue with a downgrade of the IOS. Now I'm using a:

c3900-universalk9-mz.SPA.151-3.T2

and all the access-list are working properly and also txload now is 1/255.

Probably the IOS C3900-UNIVERSALK9-M, Version 15.2(2)T has got a bug regarding that.

Thank you all for your support

Thanks for posting back to the forum indicating that you had solved the problem by using a different version of IOS. I had been thinking that the symptoms sounded like a possible IOS bug and had been looking for some reference that would support that. Thanks for confirming that this was indeed the issue. Now that the problem is solved perhaps you would mark the issue as answered so that other readers would know that there is a solution?
