Re: how to keep vpn not disconnected

Cisco IOS VPN gateway, and Cisco VPN concentrators, the Cisco Mobile VPN prevents a secure VPN connection from being disconnected when a user is on the move. As a result, the user does not need to restart and re-authenticate its VPN connection as well as its intranet applications running on the top of the VPN connection. This effectively improves the efficiency and productivity of a remote mobile worker while the security of a corporate mobile traffic is protected as usual.

Re: how to keep vpn not disconnected

I am also seeing this problem. I just set up a LAN-to-LAN tunnel from my VPN 3000 to a PIX and the tunnel drops after 5 min of no activity. Is there any way to extend this timeout ? I would rather not have it drop at all.

Re: how to keep vpn not disconnected

There is something wrong in your setup. Can you capture the following debugs:

debug cry isa

debug cry ipsec

to figure out why the tunnel is tearing down.

Hope this helps! If so, please rate.
