Explanation of Drop code and Module-ID Values in Packet Capture Output
When viewing output on the System | Packet Capture page, there are two fields that display potentially useful diagnostic information in numeric format. The Module-ID field provides information on the specific area of the firewall (UTM) appliance's firmware that handled a particular packet. The Drop-Code field provides a reason why the appliance dropped a particular packet. .
NOTE: Click on the Firmware version to view the Drop-Code details.
NOTE: Drop code numbers may change based on the firmware version, however, the drop code message (description) remains the same.
