Cisco Firewall :: C6500 - FWSM Lost Failover Communications With Mate

Feb 16, 2010

I experinced critical problem for our customer service pertaing to communication fail for FT between FWSMs.
I can just find the log in FWSM as follows and can't find any physical log as interface down in C6500 at that moment.Now our FWSM OS version is 3.2(7) and jsut monitor-interface option is applied at outside interface in FWSM.
I already opend the TAC case (SR 613646199)  but I didn't get any correct cause for problem and they just recommend to change the FWSM through RMA.

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5550 Lost SSH To Active On Failover?

Dec 19, 2010

I am having a curious problem with two Cisco ASA 5550. They are configured in Active/Standby failover and in routed mode.The problem is: I cannot connect via SSH to the ACTIVE unit, only to the STANDBY. If a switchover is forced the problem is still the same. because it happens both with the primary and the secondary unit.It is not a L2 or a transport problem, because I can ping or access both units via ASDM.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: 6509 - VSS Active Chassis Both FWSM And VSS Failover

Sep 25, 2012

Any have experience on triggered failover on VSS deployment with 1 VS-720-10G-3C in each chassis? I tried using "redundancy force-switchover" but after that the 20G VSL is flapping up & down and cannot be up normally, we got 1 FWSM in each chassis, any configuration need to fit in this kind deployment? BTW, if I shutdown the power source of VSS active chassis, both FWSM & VSS can failover normally.

Cisco Firewall :: ASA5505 - Configuration To Allow Inbound / Outbound Mail Communications

Dec 26, 2011

I’m trying to configure my ASA 5505, in order to allow my inbound and outbound mail communications. Here with this mail I’ve attached a diagram which illustrates my exact network setup along with ip addresses.

In this setup I’ve enabled port forwarding on my ADSL router (port 25 and 110) and configured the ASA accordingly, and my mail server is located inside my network.

My problem is currently I can send mails from my inside network to outside but my not receiving any mails which originate from outside. I’ve attached my current ASA configuration as well,

Cisco Firewall :: 6500 - FWSM - Not Passing Traffic Through Firewall

May 3, 2011

We have 2 FWSM modules in each 6500 switches. 1st module is having 04 firewall vlan groups with 18 vlan interfaces in a single context firewall. All are working fine with no issues. Recently we create one more vlan on MFSC and add into the same firewall module. However newly created vlan inside the FW is not able to communicate with outside and also outside users not able to reach newly created subnet. But within the firewall zones (other interfaces) it can communicate. Once we did packet capture we noticed that its hitting firewall outside interface only and when we ping we got TTL expired error. we have default routes to outside and there's no any route inside as new segment is within the firewall (no any hop).
I guess there's no limitation on number of vlans that we can assign on one firewall eventhough there is a limitation for number of vlan-group which is 16 max (but we are within that limit).

Cisco Firewall :: FWSM ACL / NAT With 6503

Jan 15, 2012

We recently deployed a FWSM on our 6503-e boxes (w/ sup720).  NAT is working (PAT) but the issue I am seeing is private traffic from remote sites is not being allowed through the FW.   I was able to get the remote site to ping the FWSM itself (inside address), but no hosts behind it.  Maybe an ACL issue? Also when I turn off NAT on the remote end, I can than access everything (We are NATng on both ends).   Im a routing guy by nature so I will defer this to the security guys out there.
Hosts (inside/ > FWSM  (outside/public IP) -> Core Router -> MPLS CLOUD -> Core Router (NATng) - > Hosts (

ACLs applied to inside/outside interface
FWSM# show access-list ATX-ALLOW-IN

access-list ATX-ALLOW-IN extended permit tcp any any (hitcnt=222)

Cisco Firewall :: 6500 - FWSM And ACE S/W Compatibility

Aug 14, 2011

We have a pair of 6500s with Sup720 running 12.2(33)SXI3. Each has an ACE-20 (s/w A2(2.0)) and FWSM (s/w v3.2(15)). We have reached a limit on the number of rules we can configure on the FWSM, and have determined that we shall upgrade to 4.1(5), with ASDM to 6.2(2)F. A question has been raised regarding the s/w on the ACE-20 modules. Do we need to upgrade them as well?

Cisco Firewall :: 6509 - FWSM Log Messages

Jul 16, 2011

I think I got a strange behavior on a context of my WS-SVC-FWM-1 (on a Catalyst 6509 running IOS 12.2(18)SXF17a) that is running FWSM Firewall Version 4.1(3). This context sends these log messages every ten minutes:
Jul 17 2011 23:31:16: %FWSM-6-302010: 0 in use, 0 most used
Jul 17 2011 23:31:17: %FWSM-6-302010: 2245 in use, 107133 most used
If I issue the "show conn" three seconds later the log message, the output I got is: FWSM#   sh conn 1041 in use, 107133 most used
In another context on the same FWSM the log message sent every ten minutes is just this one:
Jul 17 2011 23:31:17: %FWSM-6-302010: 1358 in use, 72503 most used
Jul 17 2011 23:41:22: %FWSM-6-302010: 1590 in use, 72503 most used
In this case there is no the log message where the "in use" field and "most used" field are 0 (zero). why does the context send the message with the "in use" field and "most used" field 0 (zero).

Cisco Firewall :: 6509 / 2811 - NAT At FWSM

May 17, 2011

I have attached a drawing of our network.  We have two 6509's connected to two Cisco 2811 (onsite) that the ISP owns. I am trying to get one side up and running before I worry about redundancy and so forth.  For this reason I have set all the HSRP priorities to 110 on the left 6509.  I have HSRP running between the ISP routers and V LAN 101 of the 6509's.  This works as I can ping yahoo and Google just fine from the 6509 switch.  I can't get from my laptop connected to V LAN 23 to the internet. 

It doesn't even attempt to NAT as there are no translations.  I have public address assigned by my ISP configured between the ISP routers and my 6509 on V LAN 101.  I then have the public address assigned to V LAN 100.  I configured V LAN 100 on the switch and V LAN 100 on the FWSM with the IP address in the drawing.  I have my NAT statements and route in my FWSM according to the drawing as well.  On the switch, I have a default route to X.X.12.19 which is the VIP between the ISP routers.  I can reach anything on the inside of my network, including the old network addresses from V LAN 23.  
1. Is it best to do NAT at the FWSM or should I do it on the MSFC connected to the ISP routers?  
2. If I have to configure NAT at the FWSM, does this requires me to extend the public network down to the FWSM? 
3. I'll take any examples you may have as I am stuck.

Cisco Firewall :: 6500 - FWSM Linux

Dec 20, 2012

We run a 6500 with an FWSM with multiple security contexts as well as cascading contexts with a "shared V LAN" . There is a problem with regards to Linux machines and our shared network.

For example, we have three Linux machines in production, each in three separate V LAN's. For me to communicate to these boxes from one V LAN to another I must first ping the server. If I do not ping the server it will not bring up a connection like ssh or HTTP, etc. Below is the error I get from the FWSM that hosts the Linux server, but like I said once I ping the server the error goes away. We only have this problem with Linux machines, and it is a problem for all three of them. Is the FWSM having issues understanding something with all three Linux boxes? Below is the error I get at first, when I try to SSH from one V LAN to another V LAN with the Linux machine. 

6 Dec 21 2012 16:33:54 106015 22 63000
Deny TCP (no connection) from to flags SYN ACK on interface inside.  
Below is what happens when I initiate a ping to the Linux Server and then ssh again. Notice it builds the connection with no problem after the ping. During the ping it builds the dynamic translation, and then when I ssh it builds the TCP connection. Do you know why this could be?

Cisco Firewall :: 3.2 (18) - URL Filtering In FWSM Without External Server

May 18, 2011

I have an FWSM running in multiple context mode running 3.2(18) code.  I have 3 urls that I would like to block so I can't justify the cost of an external URL filtering server.  I have found a way to filter individual URLs on the ASA but the same configuration does not seem to be available on the FWSM.  At least not on my code. Any way to do this other than resolving the hostnames and blocking the current IP addresses?

Cisco Firewall :: 7604 FWSM Boot Failure

Dec 20, 2012

I have 7604 router with FWSM module in module 3.First of all the FWSM CF has been damaged, not physically. I bought the new same compact flash (size, partnumber, etc.). Downloaded the software 3.2 for FWSM, and ASDM from Cisco website. I realized that the procedure of creating new CF for FWSM is quite diffucult: creating 1-5 partitions, where 1 - is MP, and 4th - application partition. According to cisco documentation - the default boot partition is the 4th, so I partitioned from 7604 the CF into 4 partitions (partition disk1: <1-4> maximum) and copied the software and ASDM to the 4th partition (disk1:3:). Removed the CF from the router and put it into the FWSM module.

Cisco Firewall :: 6509 / High Connections On FWSM?

Oct 19, 2011

I am having issues trying to track down what is causing a high number of connection on our FWSM in our core 6509 switch. I recently upgraded my FWSM to 3.1(20) and I'm looking for a tool to be able to find the culprit. When I receive these messages I try to get onto the firewall in time to be able to get information regarding this issue but by the time I do the device recovers. Is there a way to tweat the threshold of the SNMP trap for high connections? Is there any way I can retreive this information via SNMP? Is there are command that will allow me to extract the local IP making the most connections?

Cisco Firewall :: FWSM 4.1.8 Maintenance Software And Upgrade

1) I could not find the availale maintenance software under software donwload section?
2) what is the maintenance software version required for fwsm 4.1.8 upgrade (this does not have on the release note) url...

3) what is the main difference when you upgrad fwsm using following two methods:

- Installing to the current application partition from the FWSM CLI
-  Installing to any application partition from the maintenance partition
4) how can we verify the file integrity after copied from tftp/ftp server (because it does not support verify command as in IOS)
5) how can we see the copied files in the fwsm (it does not show with show flash or dir commands)
