Specify idle timeout values for TCP and UDP connections (Fireware 12.3 and higher)

To close TCP and UDP connections when no application data is sent for a specified length of time, configure these settings:

  • TCP—  Specify a number of minutes between 1 and 480. The default value is 5 minutes.
  • UDP — Specify a number of seconds between 10 and 600. The default value is 30 seconds.

These idle timeout values ensure that stale connections are closed and do not affect Firebox performance.

The TCP-UDP proxy action idle timeout values do not apply to traffic that is redirected to other proxy actions by the TCP-UDP-Proxy: Redirection settings.

Enable logging for reports

To send a log message for each connection request through the TCP-UDP-proxy, select this check box. To create accurate reports on TCP-UDP traffic, you must select this check box.

Override the diagnostic log level for proxy policies that use this proxy action

To specify the diagnostic log level for all proxy polices that use this proxy action, select this check box. Then, from the Diagnostic log level for this proxy action drop-down list, select a log level:

  • Error
  • Warning
  • Information
  • Debug

The log level you select overrides the diagnostic log level that is configured for all log messages of this proxy policy type.

For more information about the diagnostic log level, see Set the Diagnostic Log Level.
