I occasionally get this message with my IPSec VPN connection "WARNING: pseudo-random number generator used for IPsec processing" and if this happens when no data is traversing i can no longer send or receive data across the VPN even though the tunnel is still established. And i also realize that VPN drops intermittently and doing a ping re-establishes the tunnel, i believe this shouldnt be happening as i have the keepalive option enable. Any advice would be much appreciated.
Anybody got any ideas?
you have a different issue. that just means that their is no random number generator available for use, I have the same thing in my logs and my vpn is working.
post your config (block out last half of ips or if using an FQDN the entire thing)
this warning just means that random numbers are generated trough software and not trough a i.e. vpn-accelerator-card. but i don't think it has anything to do with your dropped tunnels, like XIII said, post your config and ipsec-logs…
