Failed to create links

When you try to install a rule-set on the remote machine (remote-fw), you might see:

Answer Loading Security Policy /etc/fw/conf/remote-fw.pf on all.all@remote-fw Failed to create links Unable to load links: Bad file number Failed to Load Security Policy on remote-fw: No state saved

FireWall-1 is not able to create the file state/links.C. Try:

Move the current state/links.C file to a different name. For example: state/old-links.C
Re-load the policy to the remote machine
