I'm using Kerio FW 6.3.1

We have an 80 connection limit on the FW. We have about 45 - 50 users that attach to the fw. For some reason all our connections are being maxed out to 80. I'm always forced to restart the FW services to get a low amount of connections.
Is there a way to determine what or whom is eating all the connections? Is there a fix for this? Please help.

Thanks,

Daniel.

Licenses are connection based, not user based. Every device using or accessing the gateway takes up a connection. you may have network printers with gateways configured, taking up connections. Or other devices. And maybe you have more PC's than users with the idea that not all PC's have to be able to use the Internet. Still, those other PC's may be taking up connections. Perhaps you use KWF as DNS for all devices?

If you have only 1 IP segment in your LAN, you set you printers up without gateway and DNS. Etc.

You could check your active hosts page to see what's taking up the connections. I notice that hosts that have Internet access disallowed by traffic policy will still take up a connection. One way to get around this is to set an automatic logout time in the authentications options page, so inactive hosts will get disconnected.

Every connection 'handled' by KWF (so being blocked as well) counts, obviously.

AFAIK disconnected hosts still take up a license for a certain time, something like a few hours, so keep that in mind.
