Active sessions across inactive vwire

L2 Linker

Just curious about what I'm seeing. I have two interfaces that are in a vwire. The switch interfaces which go to the the FW  were shut down last week yet looking on the firewall, I see that there are still active sessions which show these two interfaces as the ingress and egress points. These sessions would have been established before the interfaces were taken down. Interestingly, the byte counters are still increasing on these sessions even though the interfaces show down.


Any ideas what is happening here?

Can you please check if under Network, Virtual Wires 

Link state pass through is checked or not?


Seems in your case it is not checked that might be one of the reasons.
