Answered Question
Oct 24th, 2008

I want that a L2L tunnel be established during a period of time, this tunnel is established in a PIX 515E.

Then i had saw that we must configure the idle timeout in the group-policy, but i dont't know the difference between configuring the idle timout and the session timeout.

Anyone knows what is the difference between this two line commands.

Thanks

I have this problem too.

Hi,

Session-Timout: At the end of this period of time, the security appliance terminates the connection.

Idle-timeout: If there is no communication activity on the connection in this period, the security appliance terminates the connection.

Please refer the below URL for additional details.
