Hi all. I have searched the message base, but can’t find a answer that fits the question. :-[
While trying to trouble shoot a problem with FTP Passive not working, I went to look at the logs and found that as of 10/10/06 the logs have stopped being recorded. That is there are NO errors showing. I know that I should at least see some ICMP errors.
Has anyone else seen this problem and maybe have a cure for it. ;D
Yes, when the user has accidentally replaced/removed CPFs default blocking rule (should be the last rule - Block & Log) from the Network Monitor. Check the Network Monitor & ensure this rule is still present. Post an image of your Network Monitor rules, if you’re uncertain.
Seriously, just to be certain… I think you should visit one those web-based scan sites (a couple of URLs below). Assuming you’re not behind a router (or some such kit that has a hardware firewall), then this should put something in your log. Failing that, get a friend (who you explicitly trust) to poke at your firewall from their system.
Well, I had a little free time this evening and did several ONLINE checks. Sure enough, there are entry’s in the log. I can only assume that CPF has WORKED SO WELL that I no longer have any baddies causing internal problems, and have been just plain lucky with no on line hits recently.
Thanks for all of your help.
