VPN(IPSEC) drops after 59 minutes.



  • I have a Draytek 2860 connected to pfsense on 1and1 cloud.  I can establish a connection and the network performs as expected.  However, even though I have set the time out in Phase 1 & 2 to 86400 the connection drops after 59 minutes.

    I also tried setting up a ping xxx…. -t from both ends but this didn't keep the connection alive.  the Draytek is set to keep alive so it looks like Phase 2 is forcing this to drop after an hour.  The Draytek is set up to Dial in only.

    pfsesne is 2.4.2

    I see quite a few issues with IPSEC so wondering if this is a psfense bug.  I used a 1.x version before and the connection was faultless for years.

    Thanks

    Do you have a "Automatically ping host" setup on phase 2?
