MWG disconnect with DC

Hi guys,

Do you know if the connection session between MWG to AD is a
long or short TCP connection ?

I'm facing a issue to disconnect my MWG with DC give a error "The Following domain(s) can't be contacted: Authenication,ID:903,240 time within last 5 hours)"

Re: MWG disconnect with DC


The MWG-to-DC connection is a long running connection. It should also be very chatty as anytime a user authenticates, MWG must talk to the DC (assuming proxy auth is in use).

Shot in the dark but, 900k is a lot of times to be disconnected in 5 hours, I'm guessing its not a timeout... Perhaps there is an IPS in between and it sees SMBv1 traffic, and resets the connection.

With MWG version 7.8, SMBv2 is used for MWG-to-DC communication. I believe there is discussion on-going to have it backported to older versions but I dont have a timeline on that.

Best Regards,
