[FW1] Re: FW-1 at fwname: Access denied.
This box is running 3083 on 2.6 without websense. I was thinking it
might be load related - that would explain why sometimes pushing
rules fixes it and something not (in fact, it would explain why the
problem can fix itself), but yesterday we even did an fwstop and
fwstart and the problem seemed to persist. Do mean actual TCP
connections at the OS level? I hadn't thought of that and will check
today if the problem recurs - we tried init 6 last night and it
looks to be OK this morning.
