3COM office Connect Block internet
Posted on 2009-12-18
I have a customer with a old Office Connect firewall with 25 licenses.
We just upgrade the network with a Windows 2008 SBS hyper V so we replace one server with 3 now adn there is 3 NIC cards on that new server. Now once a week the 3COM will block acess to the internet to laptops that connect in the mornig. When I look at the logs I see teh following message: "License exceeded: Connection dropped because too many IP addresses are in use on your LAN" If I reboot the firewall then it work fine.
There is only 12 machines plus the server that has 3 NIC so a total of 15 IP. Since it suppose to have 25 liceses why does it reach the limit?
It also say that is not register and I was thinking that can be also the cause but I register it on the 3com website under my account but I have no registration code.
