VPN 3.6 and Netgear ProSafe VPN Firewall Model FVS318 with multiple users
We are having problems with the cisco VPN 3.6 when we have many users using the VPN at the same time. Users get disconnects every 5 minutes or so. I suspect it has something to do with NAT translation but I'm unsure how to setup the .pcf file to accomodate this. It seems to work fine when we have only one or two machines.
Most users machines are windows XP however we do have one user with windows 2000 who is having the same problems.
On most people's machines, they are running PC-cillin, but the personal firewall has been turned off. However, I am also experiencing the same problem on my laptop, which has McAfee installed, and again, I don't believe the personal firewall is enabled.
Our connection is High speed DSL. We have a netgear router-hub FVS318 which is our firewall as well. There is also a cisco switch 2950 connected to it.
Here is some information from the VPN log files
At 11:04, is when the VPN connection is established. The second set of log entries, starting around 11:23, is when it got disconnected.
