Hi I have a Cisco ASA 5540 that I have numerous lan-to-lan VPN's. According to one of our IT analysts, they primarily use the tunnel from midnight to 7am. Outside of that time frame they say the tunnel goes down. Should I increase the timeout on my side and ask to increase the timeout on the other end. Currently my end is set to 8hours.

Also would my ASA invalidate TCP/IP packets if the connection has been idle too long?

LAN-to-LAN VPN configurations are between two IPSec security gateways, such as security appliances or other protocol-compliant VPN devices. A LAN-to-LAN VPN connects networks in different geographic locations.
