Re: L2L VPN problem

Som,

Try in asa5520 enable ISAKMP Keepalives, this command helps prevents sporadically dropped tunnels due to inactivity thus monitoring the peer end point.

to enable it go to the tunnel group name for your l2l configuration.

e.g.

For code 7.x

asa(config)#tunnel-group

ipsec-attributes

asa(config-tunnel-ipsec)#isakmp keepalive

threshold 15 retry 10

for code 6.x

pix(config)#isakmp keepalive 15

Re: L2L VPN problem

Som,

Check two things, Security-association lifetime setings and isak policy lifetime must much at both ends.

crypto map outside_map 10 set security-association lifetime seconds kilobytes

crypto map outside_map interface outside

where x is seconds and y kilobytes , default sa lifetime is 86400 seconds or 24 hours

also check isakmp policy lifetime e.g

isakmp policy 10 lifetime xxxx , see Verify isakmp lifetime , default is 24 hours or 86400 seconds

On this link see sa lifetime info , you may need to check the gkobal policy in vpn ra as asa/pix l2l may have inherit the default ra global policy vpn lifetime of 30 minutes, see Verify Idle / Session Timeout,this settings can be change to unlimited.
