Unanswered Question
Oct 10th, 2006

Hi, first of all please excuse one more time for posting in english... but las time I used this forum I got great advicing and inputs...

I got connected a freebsd 6.1 server with a cisco 871 easy vpn server (c870-advsecurityk9-mz.123-8.YI2), using the vpnc daemon (, since Im trying to set up a keepalive connection (no disconnect on idle) in the cisco conf I add a "crypto isakmp keepalive 10", but regardless and after few minutes of no freebsd activity the vpn connection goes dead, and i have to kill the vpnc and manually connects again... how can i keep alive that connection?

thanks in advance.


I have this problem too.
