Radius server test connectivity fails : Error: 1812/udp’ is not a valid Radius authentication port or Radius client is not configured properly in the Radius server.

We have seen certain cases where a PBR is configured for the management IP (NSIP) pointing to a next hop gateway.

In case the ADC does not have a SNIP in the same subnet as the next hop configured, then the packet might never leave the ADC and hence it would fail.

No SNIP causes the Radius packet from Freebsd to Virtual server to be not sent to the actual server.

Cisco IOS XR Software SNMP Management Plane Protection ACL Bypass Vulnerability

A vulnerability in the Local Packet Transport Services (LPTS) programming of the SNMP with the management plane protection feature of Cisco IOS XR Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to allow connections despite the management plane protection that is configured to deny access to the SNMP server of an affected device.

This vulnerability is due to incorrect LPTS programming when using SNMP with management plane protection. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by connecting to an affected device using SNMP. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to connect to the device on the configured SNMP ports. Valid credentials are required to execute any of the SNMP requests.

Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are workarounds that address this vulnerability.

This advisory is available at the following link:

Security Impact Rating: Medium

CVE: CVE-2021-1243

Unable to use TLS/SSL LDAP Auth after ADM upgrade to latest build 13.0-71.40 – TLS Handshake fails with “Unknown CA”

Permanent fix provided in next build ADM 13.0-76.xx and above.

Workaround ::


Execute one of these commands in ADM CLI to overwrite Certificate attribute retrieval faulty code. Customers can keep the existing LDAP Settings, no need to change anything. External authentication should work correctly now over SSL/TLS Security.


LDAPTLS_REQCERT=never ldapsearch -D CN=[service_account],CN=users,DC=lab,DC=com -H ldaps://[ldap_ip]:636 -b DC=lab,DC=com -Z -A -o nettimeout=3 -w [passwd]


LDAPTLS_REQCERT=never ldapsearch -D CN=[service_account],CN=users,DC=lab,DC=com -H ldap://[ldap_ip]:389 -b DC=lab,DC=com -Z -A -o nettimeout=3 -w [passwd]

Customers can safely proceed and configure LDAP server with security type TLS/SSL. There wouldn’t be any impact.

Cisco Firepower Threat Defense Software SNMP Denial of Service Vulnerability

A vulnerability in the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) input packet processor of Cisco Firepower Threat Defense (FTD) Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause an affected device to restart unexpectedly.

The vulnerability is due to a lack of sufficient memory management protections under heavy SNMP polling loads. An attacker could exploit this vulnerability by sending a high rate of SNMP requests to the SNMP daemon through the management interface on an affected device. A successful exploit could allow the attacker to cause the SNMP daemon process to consume a large amount of system memory over time, which could then lead to an unexpected device restart, causing a denial of service (DoS) condition.

This vulnerability affects all versions of SNMP.

Cisco has released software updates that address this vulnerability. There are workarounds that address this vulnerability.

This advisory is available at the following link:

This advisory is part of the October 2020 Cisco ASA, FMC, and FTD Software Security Advisory Bundled Publication, which includes 17 Cisco Security Advisories that describe 17 vulnerabilities. For a complete list of the advisories and links to them, see Cisco Event Response: October 2020 Cisco ASA, FMC, and FTD Software Security Advisory Bundled Publication.

Security Impact Rating: High

CVE: CVE-2020-3533

How to create responder policy allow/block a set of ip's

  • We need to first create a data set under AppExpert>Dataset
  • We need to put all the IP that we want to block/allow

User-added image

  • After creating the data set create the following responder policy


In the above expression I have called the data set in the expression

For subnet range the policy will be as follows:


Now if we want to evaluate single Ip and subnet we need to create the following expression:


>You can use other subnets using && operator. Take assistance of expression editor to configure the policy.

>And create a action (in this case I am creating a action as redirect)

User-added image

>Bind the responder to the virtual server

Since the above expression is true for ip you will get redirected to https://citrix.com
