I am a network newbie and got a question on FWSM (Version 3.2(7)). Does the FWSM by default drops duplicate SYN packet on a TCP 3 way handshake? The traffic is between the internal and external interface.
Solved! Go to Solution.
In fact The FWSM is not able to drop dupplicate SYN packets, there is no command for that!
An IPS could drop these packets but an ASA or FWSM will not drop them as this is not a security threath,
