Cisco ASA 5505 IPSec tunnel won't establish until remote site attempts to connect

I have a site to site IPSec tunnel setup and operational but periodically the remote site goes down, because of a somewhat reliable internet connection. The only way to get the tunnel to re-establish is to go to the remote site and simply issue a ping from a workstation on the remote network. We were having this same issue with a Cisco PIX 506E but decided to upgrade the hardware and see if that resolve the issue. It ran for well over a year and our assumtions was that the issue was resolved. I was looking in the direction of the security-association lifetime but if we power cycle the unit, I would expect that it would kill the SA but even after power cycling, the VPN does not come up automatically.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Cisco ASA 5505 IPSec tunnel won't establish until remote site at

Hi there,

I had same issue with PIX 506E and it was not even a circuit issue and I got ride of it and problem got fixed with PIX515E

I don't know, the device is too old to stay alive.
