Cisco Security :: ASA5510 - Single Timeout Drops Remote-Desktop Session

Oct 19, 2012

Just recently we replaced our HQ Cisco-Pix with Cisco-ASA 5510.  where we have many branches connecting to our HQ through site-to-site vpn. Since putting this new ASA5510 at HQ , while we are getting a  Remote-Desktop session  into our branches clients, and at the time when even a single TIMEOUT occurs on the vpn-link  so the remote-desktop session   gets completely lost.  then we have to re-connect the session.This issue happens as i said above  when a single  timeout  occurs on the vpn link.  What is the issue with the ASA5510. because with pix we didn't have this issue,  remote-desktops were never getting lost / reset  with single  timeout

Cisco VPN :: ASA5510 Easy VPN Remote / IPsec Session Count

Feb 21, 2013

I recently upgraded our head end ASA5510 at our datacenter from 8.2.1 to 8.4.5. The ASDM was also upgraded from 6.2.1 to 7.1.(1)52. Under the old code, a remote ASA5505 connected via Easy VPN Remote showed 1 IPsec tunnel. However, after the upgrade, it shows 42 sessions. It would seem to me that each split tunnel network defined in the Easy VPN profile is being counted as a tunnel. Is it possible that I may have something misconfigured now that the code is upgraded?

Cisco VPN :: ASA5510 - Windows 7 Connects To It But Not Remote Desktop

Mar 15, 2010

we just got several laptops that came with Windows 7 Pro 32bit installed, and we have installed the VPN Client  The VPN client appears to connect to our ASA5510, but we are unable to connect to any machines on our network as it does on our XP machines. 

Furthermore, we cannot ping any as well.  Also, while connected the Windows 7 machine is still able to access internet site as if split-tunneling was configured, which its not!  I've seen alot of people posting on the internet about the same issue, but I have not run into any resolutions that work.

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 5520 RDP Session Timeout?

Jun 4, 2012

I have inherited the support of an ASA5520 running 8.0(3)12 code and I believe I have a pretty simple question here that I haven't been able to figure out on my own. I have a few users that connect to the box via IPSEC VPN client connections. They want to be able to leave up a RDP based connection, for monitoring purposes, for a most of the day, but thier RDP connection keeps getting discounnted after a few hours. The VPN connection never gets disconnected, just the RDP session running through it.  I have another box running 8.0(4) code and they can leave up the RDP sessions as long as they like without getting disconnected from the server(s). I have compared the configs of both boxes and don't see any glsring differences in regards to the configuration that would cuase the RDP sessions to either to stay up or be disconnected after an inactivity type scenario.
What to look for in regards to identifying the timer that is disconnecting the RDP session after a period of time.

How to configure the session expiration time of wireless users on a 2106?

Security / Firewalls :: Review Incoming Remote Desktop Connections Historically?

Apr 20, 2013

I was at my computer when the desktop appearance and taskbar changed. I immediately opened task manager to see what program might have caused this and didn't see anything out of the ordinary. Then about 2 minutes later my desktop changed back to what it normally is. I then went and disabled remote desktop connections... I think that someone may have accessed my pc remotely, buy I wasn't able to catch them at it. Is there any way to review incoming remote desktop connections historically?

D-Link DIR-825 :: Internet Session TCP Timeout So Low - 120 Seconds?

Mar 1, 2013

I have a DIR-825 with 2.60VT firmware (rented from Videotron).

Even though the manual says the stateful firewall should have a timeout on connections of 240 seconds or 7800 seconds, all of my connections start at a mere 120 seconds. I'm having trouble with IMAP IDLE pushing e-mails because the connections timeout so quickly (before any stay alive can be sent). A connection to the e-mail server gets opened on 143 (Videotron) or 993 (encrypted - google, e.g.), and I see the connection on the Internet Sessions page, the timeout starts at 120. When it hits 0, the connection is no longer displayed (it is not renewed), and the IMAP IDLE ****s out because the server can't find the client (i.e. the connection has been closed). But it's not just on those ports or servers. ALL of my TCP sessions begin at a mere 120 seconds! Even for a home router, isn't this way too low?

confirm that their DIR-825, on the Internet Sessions page, shows initial timeout values of greater than 120 for a TCP connection? I would love to see a picture of that screen showing higher values. Does it start at 240? Do you ever see a connection start at a timeout of 7800?

I see no way of changing the timeout value. Is it possible to force connections on certain ports to begin at a higher timeout value?

Cisco AAA/Identity/Nac :: 2347 - Update Is Not Active Terminal Session-Timeout

Aug 15, 2011

Our company has installed ACS Version: Internal Build ID: B.2347 with patches: 5-1-0-44-5, 5-1-0-44-6. The security policy of our company includes a password change every 3 months. Our programmers had written a script that allows us to do it. When testing revealed that the script does not work. This is due to the fact that it is not possible to enter the mode "acs-config". In determining the reasons it was found that to enter this mode there is a limit on sessions (6 sessions). When the number of connections becomes larger than 6 then the script does not work. The documentation says that the update is not active sessions is set with terminal session-timeout. In this case, the terminal session-timeout 30. But after 30 minutes of the session will remain active. It interferes with our script.

Cisco Switches :: Management HTTPS Session To SF200-24 Suddenly Timeout

May 6, 2013

what would be causing my management HTTPS session to a SF200-24 to suddenly timeout? I receive "The session has been timed out. You may log in again" few mins after logging into to switch.Sometime it happens within 45seconds, other times after 3mins, timouts are not consistent. And, i was not idle when it timed-out. My HTTPs idle time-out is set for 10mins.
I had a continuous PING going to managment IP, and it did not drop any pings when session timed-out.Interface stats are also clean. I tried IE, FireFox, Chrome and all are timming out.
I've changed the HTTP default idle-time out from 1 to 10 and my HTTPs stopped timing out. Management Access Authentication is cleary set for HTTPs, and the Idle-timeout for HTTPs was set for 10mins since install. Yet, adjusting the HTTP idle-timeout cleared the issue.

Cisco Switches :: SG300-20 - Radius Idle And Session Timeout Does Not Work

Jan 25, 2012

I have an SG300-20 here for testing (firmware:, boot version:, language version: English). Everything seems to work on it, except, that if I choose Radius authentication by mac address only, then the switch does not honor the Idle-Timeout and Session-Timeout attributes from the Radius server (freeradius).
The setup is the following: I have a no name access point plugged in to switch port gi1. The port gi1 is set up for Radius authentication by mac address only. The access point itself is authenticated, no problem with that. If I connect through the access point by (say) a mobile phone, it is authenticated, no problem. The radius server does send the Idle-Timeout and Session-Timeout attributes, I checked it by running "freeradius -X", both are set to 30 seconds. Then I turn off the wireless card in my mobile phone and check the dot1x users by "show dot1x users". My mobile phone's mac address remains there for 5-10 minutes, so the Idle-Timeout and Session-Timeout  does not work.
Another way I could resolv this problem is by explicitely asking the switch to reauthenticate the user. Unfortunately there is no CLI command to do just that, I can do however a reauthentication on a port using "dot1x re-authenticate gi1" (for example). But it does not work as it is expected: the switch uses the stored mac-address to reauthenticate the user, so nothing changes on the port (unless something changes in the radius server). I think it should work like the following: remove the authenticated user from the port, and whenever that mac address makes some network traffic, then reauthenticate as if it were a completely new connection. BTW: it would work for me also if I could just remove an authenticated user from a port, but I did not find a command to do that.
As a last resort I can simply shutdown the port, bring it up again ("shutdown" and "no shutdown" in the interface config), then all users are removed from the port and they all mush reauthenticate. But it causes a network outage for a couple of seconds for all users on that port, on a busy access point it is quite disturbing, and it is not an elegant way to do this.
So my actual question is: is there a way to remove an authenticated user either automatically (Idle-Timeout and Session-Timeout) or manually from this switch?
I enclose the relevant part of the running config.

interface range gi1-2
dot1x host-mode multi-sessions
vlan database
vlan 2-4

Cisco Wireless :: AIR-CT5508-K9 - AP01 Connection Bounce Due To WLAN Session Timeout

Jul 30, 2012

When a client connecting to a specific AP (example AP01), after every 1800 sec uptime it will reconnect and join other unit AP (example AP02)Both AP physically installed distance is around 6 meters from each other. I conduct the testing where i get myself sitting in middle between these two APs.
01. If i disable settsion timeout this feature, or setting the seconds become higher value, what's the performance and security impact? Is it recomend to change the default 1800 seconds session timeout?
02. Is there anyway i can tweak on WLC controller to prevent the client after session timeout then associate with another AP. This will lead major performance impact as the client woudl possibility connect to the weak signal AP and effect on the performance.

Cisco Firewall :: Single Session HTTPS Offload On ASA 5505?

Jan 14, 2013

I have an ancient Alteon load balancer which only supports HTTP and telnet access. Our management people only allow HTTPS through the management firewall farm, and don't want to change this policy.  So I need a low cost HTTPS to HTTP conversion, ideally on Cisco hardware like an ASA5505. It only needs one concurrent user. Is there a way to configure an ASA 5505 to terminate the inbound HTTPS seession and re-originate a HTTP management session to the Alteon? It looks to me as if the Clientless SSL VPN might do the job.Is there a way to do a SSH to telnet conversion on the ASA, or on a router?

Cisco Firewall :: Asa5510 Idle TCP Connection Timeout With Flags

May 14, 2012

I have ASA 5510 with 8.2.4 and 8.0.x OS and all seem to have common problem of idle TCP connections not timing out. The host to host connections are coming over VPN tunnels. I have default timeouts on all the firewalls. I have tried changing global timeouts and as well as host specific timeouts using MPF but doesn't work at all ! The problem is when TCP connections are sitting idle in conn table for days and when connection limit of 50,000 conns reach the firewall starts behaving unpredictably dropping packets or unresponsive! I need the unused idle connections to timeout which is NOT happening either by changing global values or MPF.

Cisco VPN :: Single ASA5510 - Two Public IPs For Web VPN

NAT is not working, secondary IP address is not possible, sub-interface is not the right way. Is this really not possible?

Cisco VPN :: 5520 - Incorrect TCP Session Logs For Remote VPN Users On ASA

Oct 29, 2012

I have a problem on a Cisco ASA5520 version 8.2(5). A customer has set up a syslog to keep tracks of tcp sessions made by vpn users. On the syslog we filter %ASA-6-302013 and %ASA-6-302014 log messages, respectively: Built inbound TCP connection and Teardown TCP connection. When the connection is made by a vpn user, at the end of the log line you see the vpn username which should be the same in both the messages for the same connection. I have verified that when a user, let's say UserA, disconnects from the vpn, their tcp sessions are not properly closed; if another user, let's say UserB, establish a VPN immeditaely after and gets the same IP address previously assigned to UserA, the log sessions are recored with UserA in the %ASA-6-302013 message and UserB in the %ASA-6-302014 message. I presume this is due to the fact the tcp sessions are not tore down when the first user disconnects and it looks like a bug to me but I didn't find it referenced anywhere. Is there a way to have all tcp session tore down when a user disconnects the VPN connection?
