VPN Tunnel Disconnects after not being used for a while

I have a site-to-site VPN tunnel. If the tunnel is not used for quite some time, the VPN will not work at the remote site. I have to do a ping from the primary site to the remote site to start the connection. This actually started happening when I upgraded my PIX 515 to an ASA5510. I am connecting to a PIX 501.

You could run dead peer detection on both devices to keep the tunnel alive.

ASA

tunnel-group x.x.x.x ipsec-attributes

isakmp keepalive threshold 30 retry 2

PIX

isakmp keepalive 30 2

Ok. But from the SW version 7.2.x the isakmp keepalive is active by default on ASA devices.

Hi,

Have you find out some solution?

I'm facing the same problem with ASA Version 8.0.x.
