PIX with software 6.3 permit-hostdown equivalent?

    I know that version 6.3 of the pix firewall software does not have the
    permit-hostdown command for syslogging. Does anyone know if theres an
    equivalent of that? We've been trying this new syslog server and were
    trying to work some of the bugs out that we've come across... but when
    it flakes out on us our internet goes down do to the fact that if
    logging is on on the PIX and it can't log it doesn't allow any new
    connections.

    Long story short... does anyone know how to tell the PIX to keep
    working normally even when it can't log to the log server???

    Use udp syslog (the default). The PIX will only halt traffic
    flow if it is unable to log to a tcp syslog server. With udp
    it doesn't even get told whether the message made it as far as
    the syslog server.
