Cisco ASA Audit Event: 105505

Cisco ASA Events

The logs of network perimeter devices such as firewalls, antivirus applications and intrusion prevention systems contain crucial information that helps to pre-emptively block security attacks and breaches. Hence, it's mandatory for you to monitor and audit these logs. Because Cisco ASA provides the combined functionality of all the three, it becomes all the more important to monitor its logs. 

ManageEngine's EventLog Analyzer, a comprehensive log management solution, collects and analyzes the log data from Cisco ASA devices, triggers alerts and generate reports on detected security incidents thus helping you to take suitable measures against security threats, if any.

105505: Failed to connect to peer unit

Cisco ASA is a security device that provides the combined capabilities of a firewall, an antivirus, and an intrusion prevention system. It also facilitates virtual private network (VPN) connections. It helps to detect threats and stop attacks before they spread through the network.

How could you resolve this situation?

Verify the following:

  • The peer IP address configured on each unit should match an interface IP address on the peer.
  • The peer port number on each unit should match the failover control (server) port on the peer.
  • The interfaces used for the peer connection should not be shutdown.
  • Any IP routes required for IP connectivity should be present.
