Re: One firewall in a VPN pair pinging the other?

Is it pinging the outside interface or through the tunnel? Either way, managed service providers ping both all the time to monitor their clients. (I work for one)

I have a pix 506E on one end of an ipsec site to site vpn that seems to be
pinging it's remote peer at a constant rate. Almost every second. This
traffic wasn't logged before I started at this job and not until a week ago,
so it's difficult to tell if it was happening prior to the VPN being created
(which was a couple of months ago) or not. Can anyone tell me if this is a
standard function, or if something is amiss? Thanks for your help...
