Netscreen SSG5 Firewall
Posted on 2015-02-19
I have been using Netscreen devices at the Enterprise level for a few years but only in the area of editing existing policies created by the corporate gurus of firewalls, which brings me to my question. I have an SSG5 for my home firewall, currently it has only one policy in place. That is to allow any traffic from the untrusted zone to the trusted zone. 2 things are happening that I can't get my head wrapped around. First issue is after 20 days or so, FTP traffic will cease to flow out bound. I get a time out error. The fix seems to be to reset the SSG5 and all is well again. Second is that TCP port 5001 traffic is being blocked somehow and I am not sure why. I admit to being new at creating the policies and I am looking for some guidance.
