Re: Hi,Need to know what is "Connection Opened" in soniWall firwall . Device Event Class I

what is the meaning of the below:

In specific cases of multi-layer packet processing, a TCP connection initially logged as "open," will be rejected by a deeper layer of packet processing. In these cases, the connection request has not been forwarded by the SonicWALL security appliance, and the initial Connection Open SonicOS log event message should be ignored in favor of the TCP Connection Dropped log event message.

I think you really need to go visit the Sonicwall community or check with your support - but essentially i believe it is saying that the firewall may record a connection as allowed, but a further processing rule or third party tool such as IPS, Packet inspection, WAF or downstream firewall may still block it - so the connection was never fully established.
