We are facing these error messages in NXLog log files:

2018-12-09 23:45:16 ERROR om_tcp detected a connection error;Connection timed out

I suspect that our firewall is blocking those connections eventually as i can't see any TCP Keep-Alive packets in tcpdump from the server where the NXLog agent is installed. On 2015-04-01 2.9.1361 changelog is this line:

All tcp based network modules are now using TCP_KEEPALIVE to detect dead peers.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Hope it does some difference in the behaviour.

    Let us know if it doesn't. According to the code the socket is set up with TCP_KEEPALIVE so it should be sending the probes.
