>>it will break once around every 5 mins

Are you sure its not simply timing out?

enter the following command (on both Firewalls)

what does the command means?

I tried to setup a syslog server on my pc, but failed.

I logged into http server inside the FW found some info log as below, but seems no use.

302013: Built outbound TCP connection 7009 for outside ....................
