Vpn dropping periodically

By Alan4 ·
Hi,I am having trouble with my vpn connection it drops while running a application and even when not being used but connected.if you wait it will reconnect by itself, a real pain in the neck while working.vpn client is connected to a host pc which is logged into to a domain network through a windows server 2003.a secure gateway through a watchguard firewall,vpn tunnel using safenet soft remote.
If i connect to the server from a client i get no drops.I tested the internet connection by pinging a site with a load and no drops or errors the internet connection doesn't seem to be the problem and because the server connection does not have a problem the firewall vpn is ok. I am out of ideas,any help will be appreciated

there are parameters that limit the amount of session time and idle time for remote access client.

Time limits

Sorry i have not responded sooner,I am having my people make note of the timing of the drop to see if there is a pattern that would indicate a limit. I will get back to you when i have the data. Thanks for the response,Alan

Still an ongoing problem

by Alan4 In reply to Time limits

Well i don't think it is timing out,there isn't a pattern it seems to be eratic.I am starting to think it is my network switch, could this be possible. Thanks

More information

Ok,Pinging to the remote with a load to a remote work station last night and lost the connection after 10 minutes,A string of time outs then the connection drops, 2-3 minutes later the connection reconnects.
I tried pinging the server and i didn't get any lose connections but there were frequent timeouts just not all together. I looks like a timeout issue as CG Suggested but since i am new to this stuff can you provide some guidance.
Update- i decided to try pinging the work station again this morning and now i am getting no drops but intermittent timeouts. I am pulling my hair out trying to isolate the problem.
