Hello, I'm trying to investigate tcp-179 connection issues with the local frr setup. See below for more background. The question is: What can I do to find the cause of the failing connection ? Is there a way to trace the incoming packet to see if it ever ends up at bgpd process ? Background: a fbsd 13.0p4 amd64 box, with a frr-7.4_4 (or 7.5.1_3) fails to act on incoming ipv4 tcp 179 connections. The bgpd daemon of frr listens on port 179: frr bgpd 96061 20 tcp6 *:179 *:* frr bgpd 96061 21 tcp4 *:179 *:* Incoming packets can be seen with tcpdump on the dest host: # tcpdump -i vlan500 -n -s 1500 port 179 and host <source-host> tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode listening on vlan500, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 1500 bytes 13:53:13.795162 IP <source>.12274 > <dest>.179: Flags [S], seq 62227917, win 65535, options [mss 1460,nop,wscale 9,sackOK,TS val 2870882787 ecr 0], length 0 But: No connection is established 8-( The basic ipfw firewall is active, but -- pi@FreeBSD.org +49 171 3101372 Now what ?
