What does the "Connection terminated for peer" error message seen in the Cisco VPN 3000 Concentrator logs mean?

Core issue

The client connection gets terminated.


The VPN Concentrator can terminate the client connection for various reasons, including the following:

  • If the client does not respond to consecutive Dead Peer Detection (DPD) keepalive messages

  • If the client is idle for a specified time (defined on the VPN Concentrator)

  • If the client has been connected for a specific duration (defined on the VPN Concentrator)

If the error message is not caused by one of the above reasons, open a case with the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC).
