how can I set

vpn-idle-timeout none

on a PIX 6.3 software? Is it something that exists only for 7.x?

If yes, is there any other way to stop vpn from dropping after a certain period of inactivity?

In version 6.3, the idle timeout was appliable only to VPN client connections.. In Version 7.0, the 30-minute idle timeout applies to both client and LAN-to-LAN tunnels. To remove the idle timeout on LAN-to-LAN tunnels and restore the 6.3 behavior, you must create a new group-policy and specify none for the vpn-idle-timeout value.
