Did you configure the GRE tunnel to use keepalives? Failure of the keepalive (if configured) would be one cause of the symptoms that you describe.


I would also ask if you use extended ping and in the extended ping specify the target address as the tunnel destination address and specify the ping source address as the tunnel source address. In that extended ping does it still work?
