Cisco 506E timeout question

I have a Cisco 506E and I am running windows 2003 IIS6 behind it.

My website uses session timeouts and lately I have noticed that the sessions are not lating as long as they are set for
(30 minutes)

I was wondering if this could have something to do with the firewall??

Here are my timeout values:

timeout xlate 10:00:00
timeout conn 0:00:00 half-closed 0:00:00 udp 0:00:00 rpc 0:00:00 h225 0:00:00
timeout h323 0:00:00 mgcp 0:00:00 sip 0:00:00 sip_media 0:00:00
timeout uauth 0:00:00 absolute

Is there any chance it is the firewall causing my asp session timeout problems?
If so, is it in the values I posted?
If not.. somewhere else in the cisco config?

You might try setting the absolut timer to 30 minutes:

timeout uauth 0:30:00 absolute
and the connection timeouts also to a specific time (that is longer than the absolute):

timeout conn 1:00:00

a corrupt IIS website.
I deleted the site out of frustration, created a new one and whalla!

Server people are always pointing fingers at the network, when it is quite often their own problem being masked.

Who said I was a server person??


I'm actually "a little bit of everything and not much of anything" kind of guy.
Not an expert at network but can get it running, not expert at coding, but can get dynamic pages to work
on and on....
that's why I ask so many questions here.

YOU guys are the Specific Experts.

Now ask me a question about the Tivo, DirecTV, DVD creation, Home Theatre, Miami Dolphins, Sox, Bruins, Huskies, Celtics and I can tell you no problem.
Is there a category for some of that here???

Maybe we should start a "sports"  or "Electronic Toys" section
