I have a site to site VPN setup using a PIX 515e as the hub termination point at our data center. I have a PC at the remote site that traverses that PIX to get to a database on an IBM AIX server at the data center. This database connection never used to time out or drop prior to putting them on this VPN connection. (The site used to be directly connected with a 64k link). The entire site never drops or goes down, we have several monitors in place monitoring routers/servers etc. at that site that remain solid even when this database connection dies. Any thougts on how/why this db connection is continually dropping regardless of activity? Thank you.
