If one end of an IPSEC vpn has a lifetime set to 28800 secs and the other end 3600 secs, what effect will this have on the connection? And why?
The Vpn establishes and runs okay but periodically drops out. I presume this SA Lifetime mis-match is the cause, but was just curious as to why? As my understanding was that even though the lifetimes are different they agree on the lower value anyway?
