VPN loses connection after 2 minutes

By rob_duk ·
Hi

I have three Win XP boxes, one is set up as a VPN host, the other as a
VPN client, which is on a separate network. Both are permanently
connect to the internet.

Able to connect to the host from the client and browse shared folders
on the host.

However, every time I connect the connection always drops after 2 min
18 sec, whether I am browsing or not.

Does anyone have any ideas how to solve this problem?

hi,

check the idle time before hangup option.
or maybe your provider blocking your VPN connection (if this has happened before).

cheers.

Idle timeout already set to "Never"

Hi hugestone,

Thanks for your reply.

The connection is dropped even if I am actively opening
documents or browsing folders... The idle time setting is set
to "Never" on the client. Is there a similar setting on the host?

The title says it all. This software has been a nuisance since
installing it and I am increasingly switching off various
elements to allow the server to operate properly, therefore
rendering it virtually useless.
