    Hi there,

    I am trying to limit UDP connections initiated from a higher level sec
    int to a lower level sec int, aka my internal users to the internet.

    I'm using static mapping as so:
    static (inside,outside) x.24.110.26 netmask 50 10

    Thing is I can't seem to get the UDP connection limit emphasized. I do
    get the TCP limit working as it shows bellow but no luck for UDP.
    I'm aware UDP is connectionless but the cisco docs for the static
    command clearly says:
    "Specifies the maximum number of simultaneous TCP and UDP connections
    for the entire subnet"

    Could anyone shed some light on this?
    Using a Cisco PIX Firewall 506 Unlimited License OS Version 6.3(5)
    I appreciate it.


    pix6# sh local-host
    Interface inside: 345 active, 404 maximum active, 0 denied
    local host: <>,
    TCP connection count/limit = 50/50
    TCP embryonic count = 2
    TCP intercept watermark = 10
    UDP connection count/limit = 342/unlimited
    Global x.24.110.26 Local
