Telnet timeout

Hello,

We have the servers inside our network that the employees can Telnet on. The session never time out.

We have a regional office from where the employees Telnet on the same servers but they have a timeout after 10 minutes idle time.

All the network devices are Cisco. The regional office is connected to headoffice via a VPN connection. The VPN is terminated on my Cisco Firewall.

Would somebody have any idea what the problem can be?

I am wondering if I have to change any configuration on my Cisco routers or switch or even firewall!!! but I do not know what it is!!!

Thanks,

Mehdi

Re: Telnet timeout

My hunch is that you are hitting some sort of TCP session idle timeout on the firewall, but I am no firewall expert.

Try posting this question in the Security forum...

Re: Telnet timeout

Thanks for your post.

The guys in security helped me to fix the issue. There was a timeout in firewall causing the problem.
