VPN Concentrator disconnected every 7:36:32


Hi experts, I found my L2L setting which configuration between VPN concentrator and Pix will disconnect every 7:36:32, I have searched on Internet and find some users already have the same problem but don't have an possible answer, do any expert know what is the reason for this?

Concentrator log:

LAN-to-LAN tunnel to headend device <peer ip address> disconnected: duration: 7:36:32

- Is the problem related to Phase 2 rekeying? I have already set the Phase 2 key lifetime to 28800(8 hours), if it is related to Phase 2 rekey, why it disconnected every 7:36:32, not 8 hours?

- Also, is it related to the phase 2 proposal not match between the two device?

Please help...

It could be P2 rekey. Make sure PFS is either disabled or enabled on both devices.

Hi Auraza, I've checked both devices and found PFS is disabled for them. Any other possible reason? Is it related to Phase 2 SA proposal problem?

Not sure if it is related to SA proposal or what, but if you did initially connect, then it doesn't sound like a Phase 2 problem, but we'll have to see debugs to see what is going on.

General -> Events -> Classes:

enable IKE, IKEDBG, IPSEC, IPSECDBG to log for sev 1-9.

Once this happens again, copy the logs and post them here, with the time that it happened. That should give a better idea.
