question about ZyWall 110 router.

Session limits are enabled.

Found odd log entries about session limit exceeded with both source and the destination address being 127.0.0.1

Does 127.0.0.1 refer to ZyWall device? Requests from a connected device to itself would not go to ZyWall, would they?

If 127.0.0.1 refers to ZyWall device, are these sessions expected?

    Hi @ciez
    Which firmware is working on your device? We have fixed similar issue in latest(465AAAA.1) firmware.

    Hi,

    Thank you for replying.

    The firmware is up to date.

    The session limit was set at 64, then 128. It is exceeded when the router device and connected PCs start up. Once all the devices started, there are no such log entries.

    I'll try increasing the session limit.

    Just was wondering if such log entries are expected or suspicious.
