Cisco ASA and Apache timeouts

We have a client that has access to one of our servers for a billing software. They are getting lost of connectivity periodically for about 1 minute. This happens inconsistently but multiple times during the day. Could this be a timeout problem between the firewall and the Apache server? Is there a way to monitor the firewall for this?

thx!

You can use ASDM logging with a filter for the apache's ip address and see if anything shows up.

We have done that but we don"t see errors. Not sure if it's application related or firewall related.

You could use wireshark to see what's going on between the server and the firewall: http://www.wireshark.org/

True. I will try it after I upgrade the firewalls. We have a maintenance window tomorrow night. After that is done , then I can return to this.. :)

I have upgraded the firewall code from 8.2 to 8.3 and all is good now.

Nothing was showing up in the logs and I had to do an upgrade for the shared licensing purpose. When I did that upgrade, the problem went away.
