    Good day

    We've got what may or may not be a problem. If we do a show conn on the
    running PIX, we get hundreds of entries for UDP connections to our DMZ
    protected DNS servers on port 53. We have a setup for the DNS servers
    where the PIX translates from the outside address to the subnet that the
    DMZ runs. If we restart the devices, the connections return quickly.

    Is this normal behavior for a PIX, are we under some sort of attack or
    have we just misconfigured something?

    Regards

    Bruce Smith

    Firewall Administrator.

    Snapshot of the show conn output follows
