Traffic is dropped with "dropped by fwmultik_process_f2p_cookie_inner Reason: fwmultik_f2p_cookie_outbound_and_routing failed;" error message Technical Level
Symptoms
  • When secureXL is enabled on the Security Gateway, traffic is dropped with this error in kernel debug (fw ctl zdebug drop):
    "dropped by fwmultik_process_f2p_cookie_inner Reason: fwmultik_f2p_cookie_outbound_and_routing failed;".

  • A device between the source and destination has an MTU higher that 1500. The Security Gateway has an MTU of 1500.

Cause

The PMTUD tries to find the optimal MTU in all the path between the client and the server by sending large MTU with DF flag, every node in the path that can accept only smaller MTU sends ICMP fragmentation needed with its acceptable MTU. The ICMP message is not sent properly.
