 Subject:  Monowall - Everything works for 10-30 minutes, then stops
 Date:  Tue, 13 Jun 2006 10:54:40 -0400
I am trying to get a monowall v1.22 (Soekris 4801) working in a new
environment.  The environment is as follows:

 

 

ISP ---- CISCO PIX 506e (xx.xx.144.194 Subnet 255.255.255.248 GW
xx.xx.144.193) -> internal network 192.168.1.1

         |--- monowall 1.22 (xx.xx.144.194 Subnet 255.255.255.248 GW
xx.xx.144.193) -> Different internal network 192.168.1.1

 

There aren't any connections between the two internal networks (both on
their own 192.168.1.1).  When the monowall comes up, everything routes
beautifully.  About 10-30 minutes later, traffic stops passing through
the monowall.  I can still use the monowall's admin interface from the
internal network when this happens.

 

Can anyone help me diagnose the problem?

 

I am wondering if it could be one of the following issues: a) The ISP's
router is somehow confused by their being two routers at our end; b)
hardware problem with monowall, 

 

The following message is posted in the monowall log when traffic stops:
