Cisco VPN Client Timeout through PIX515E

I have a Cisco VPN Client that must remain connected throughout the business day. The session disconnects approxamately every 2 hours. Is there an inactivity timeout that can be increased to allow an 8-10 hor connection?

Re: Cisco VPN Client Timeout through PIX515E

What version of the vpn client and what version of the pix code are you running? I assume that the pix is the ipsec gateway, that is it terminates the ipsec tunnel to the client, am I correct?

In the case of pix 6.3 being the gateway, there are two parameters with respect to the vpngroup (easy vpn server) config that come into play, the idle- and max-time parameters. The values that the client uses are these as they get pushed from the pix to the client. If this is your case, you will need to have them adjusted.

Let me know if this helps, Ed Hirsel
