Hi,
I am reviewing firewall logs and I am trying to understand this line.


Jan 18 10:08:39 logapps %ASA-6-303021: Teardown ICMP connection for faddr 141.000.100.2/0 gaddr 141.000.63.159/0 laddr 141.000.63.159/0


What does the faddr / gaddr and laddr mean?  Since it is a ping, one is the initator of the ping, the current address and the final address.... is that correct?

Thanks!

foreign address (one not in control by this ASA/router)

global address (after NAT)

local address (pre NAT)

So you are correct.....

The foreign address originated with our network?  Or is this nated.

What is the different between the global address and the local address?  They are appearing as the same.   Thanks.

global address and the local address could be same when you are pinging from within ASA.

Sounds like that faddr might be a VPN address which is why it shows internal, do you run a VPN on that range?
