Extremely slow boot time

  • Hi,

    I'm running PFS 1.2.3-RC1 and had to reboot recently.  It took over an hour and a half for my firewall to come back up.  On previous occasions I've rebooted and it took only a couple of minutes.  It seems like something is hanging/timing out with my IPSEC VPN tunnels.

    During the boot process I was able to login with SSH and manually start my web gui.  In the filter reload status screen I saw the message creating vpn tunnel information - tunnel name.  Several minutes would pass and then the next VPN tunnel would show up with the same message, "creating vpn tunnel."  This keeps happening for all 20 of my VPN tunnels.  At 4 minutes per tunnel the time really adds up.

    Once the firewall is up everything works fine, except I have to edit each of my VPN tunnels and click the save button before the  tunnels will come up.  Anyone have any ideas why this is happening or how I can fix it?


  • whats the latency for you vpn connections? (ping the ip) if you have to go in and manually connect it tells me that it is timing out (taking too long/longer than it should so it gives up and will try again later-not sure when later is though) hence you have to do it manually.
