Symptoms

PPTP filter emits a vague error message in the ltm log, for example: 'Error ERR_BOUNDS connflow 74.14.223.32:1723 -- 121.54.54.11:34976 processing pullup of control message,' or 'Error ERR_BOUNDS connflow 65.93.152.110:1723 -- 121.54.54.11:2004 processing egress message.'

Impact

These messages are cosmetic only, and can be ignored safely, but may indicate that another protocol is using port 1723.

Conditions

PPTP ALG is configured. CGNAT is configured. Non-PPTP traffic is being directed to port 1723.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

Error ERR_BOUNDS loglevel has changed from ERR to DEBUG, which is correct behavior.
