Cisco ASA Audit Event: 201006

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.

201006: RCMD back-connection failed for an IP address or a port

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.

Message: %ASA-3-201006: RCMD backconnection failed for IP_address.

Event 201006 is generated when the ASA is unable to preallocate connections for inbound standard output for 'rsh'commands because of insufficient memory.

How could you resolve this situation?

Check the rsh client version. The ASA only supports the Berkeley rsh client version. You can also reduce the amount of memory usage or purchase additional memory.
