VPN Concentrator 3030 and load balancing

Hi all

I have 2 vpn3030 in VRRP and load balancing.

I stablish the connection to Virtual IP, and I see the connex go throug one of them. If I shutdown the master, all vpns connections go to the other one.

This is a normal behaviour.

BUT, What happens if VPN-A (master) fails when one vpn connection is stablish ? VPN client disconect..... User, manually, has to reconnect again, and the new connections are stablished with VPN-B.

Is there any way to configure this VPN3030 or VPN Client for stateful connection ? I mean, If VPN-A fails, connections are passed to VPN-B and there is no vpn tunnel down ?

Re: VPN Concentrator 3030 and load balancing

I have read that VRRP is not to be runned along with load balancing. Please correct me if I am wrong. Please check this out. Concentrator configuration guide.

I think load balancing does not eliminate session disconnection when destination Gateway fails. IPSEC must start a new session and exchange new keyes with another vpn 3000 in cluster and therefore it is nearly impossible that the session stays active.
