We have Ascend Pipeline 50 with the 6.1.19 software version. We have the
Secure Connect option with 3DES purchased and enabled. Our VPN is working
perfectly with one exception. On every VPN link, TCP sessions are subjected
to an apparently random activity timeout. For example, if I telnet across the
VPN, as long as I press a key every 5 minutes or so, the connection stays up
indefinitely. If there is no activity, the session is killed by the router
with no logging or explanation.
This is killing us! Ascend tech support suggested changing some of the
numbers in the FWTEMPL.DAT. They didn't have any documentation - just change
them until it works better. Since it takes about 1/2 hr per experiment, this
approach is impractical.
