PIX Idle connection timeout

    We have a PIX 5151E firewall which is configured to delete idle TCP
    sessions after 1 hour. This is affecting LDAP authentication for a web
    server as it still perceives the TCP session to be active. On both the
    web and LDAP server, netstat shows an open TCP session.

    The PIX however has removed the session from it's connection table due
    to it being idle for more than 1 hour. I am aware this is normal
    behaviour for the firewall and ideally the application parameters
    should be tweaked...

    Is there a way to have the PIX send a TCP FIN or TCP RST when it clear
    the session for it's connection table.
    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Cheers,
    Rob

    No :( It also doesn't send FIN or RST when you 'clear xlate' :(
