PIX syslog error Message

Hi there,

       I was looking at a PIX syslog and in the logs I noticed that there were a couple of entries which had a priority of error. When I took a look at them closer I saw that in the syslog it stated

>> 04-14-2006      11:42:13      Local4.Error      10.1.1.1      Apr 13 2006 22:29:50: %PIX-3-305005: No translation group found for udp src inside:192.168.197.1/123 dst outside:207.46.232.189/123

Can someone please explain to me why did this error occur on the PIX, what was the outside: IP(207.46.130.100) trying to do I know that they were using port 123, however what exactly happen that the PIX gave an error?

                                                              Thank You in Advance

looks like one of your internal devices is still configured for time.windows.com for NTP

basically it says that your not allowing that host to go to NTP at windows.
vreyesiiAuthor Commented:
Thank You for the reply.

         Well the problem is that none of the internal devices have an ip address of 192.168.197.1. So I do not know if maybe someone from the outside was trying to do something, however, I do not understand what excatly they were trying to do?

                                Thank You
jabiiiCommented:
NTP is a network time protocol, being that this one is connecting to windows, I assume it is a windows machine trying to connect back to windows, to ensure it has the correct time.
It could be a misconfigured computer.

can you check your arp table on the pix and see if it see's the 192 address? can you try tracing to it from the 10.1.1.1 interface?
vreyesiiAuthor Commented:
I looked at the ARP table and I do not see any 192 address.

Somebody has something with IP address 192.168.197.1 trying to set its time using NTP.
The PIX does not recognize it as being routable on inside interface and can't set up an xlate for it, hence the error.
Suggest using "capture" command on PIX to find source MAC address, or use Solarwinds' switchport mapper to find the culprit
http://www.solarwinds.net/Tools/Network_Discovery/Switch_Port_Mapper/index.htm
This will tell you exactly which switchport this offendor is connected to and you can chase them down.
rsivanandanCommented:
I'm wondering how come this 192.168.197.1 address made it up to the PIX firewall? I mean technically you need to have a router to do it right? Between 10.1.1.0 and 192.168.197.0 ??

Cheers,
Rajesh

vreyesii, been a while since we saw your config; have you got other interfaces (real or virtual) on your PIX?
lrmooreCommented:
I saw the exact same thing on my pix when I put a secondary IP address on my PC so that i could access another box that I brought home from the office. I saw that secondary IP address as the source for NTP requests (and it only seemed to be for ntp) with the appropriate no translation message.
rsivanandanCommented:
Lrmoore,

  Secondary IP as in a different network with no way to route it?

Cheers,
Rajesh

There is nothing wrong the the PIX config.. except your deny acl:

access-list deny_outbound deny tcp any host 63.236.X.X eq https
access-list deny_outbound permit ip any any  <== this is too high and the next two entries will not be evaluated, so you will not block what you think you will

access-list deny_outbound deny tcp any host 209.202.X.X eq https
access-list deny_outbound deny tcp any host 63.236.X.X eq www


>Secondary IP as in a different network with no way to route it?
Raj, yes that is exactly right. Apparently Windoz throws it out to the default gateway with the wrong source IP.

jabiiiCommented:
might want to check your arp table on your switch that is on the same internal network as the FW see if it knows where the culprit is.

I did what everyone suggested however I didn't find the ip address . I also fixed the access lists.

You should check all of your windows computers and see who is configured for NTP to microsoft.

then see if any of themhave a dual homed nic. ipconfig /all.
