vpn-idle-timeout for L2L tunnels?

Unanswered Question
Jul 8th, 2009

On an ASA 5505,

Does the vpn-idle-timeout value in the default group policy apply to L2L tunnel groups?

As far as I knew, this parameter was only used for remote-access VPN configurations but since L2L tunnel groups reference this group policy by default, I'm curious to know if the idle-timeout value has any bearing on the L2L tunnel.

I have this problem too.

The vpn-idle-timeout as configured in the default group policy will impact L2L tunnels as well. The recommended configuration is to use a different group policy for your L2L tunnel groups where the idle timeout is set to vpn-idle-timeout none.
