  • Hi Abu_Bakar_Afzal,

    I have a few suggestions to try to check:

    • Which type of VS are you using? ie: Standard vs FastL4.
    • Verify which tcp profile is in use, and consider swapping it to a "lan" or "wan" variant.
    • Is any SMTP profile in use?
    • Is the connection between the BIG-IP and the SMTP server busy, high latency, or otherwise congested?

      VS is Standard and we are using default SMTP profile. Connection is not even used its new deployement.

    I think much better if you post your config of your VS here. Also, you can expand the RST, ACK as it might give you more details on why it is sending RST flags.
