Set Default Idle Timeout for IPSec VPN Tunnels

Applicable Version: 10.6.1 onwards

Overview

Setting a default Idle Timeout for any IPSec VPN Connection enables administrator to define the maximum time for which the tunnel will stay connected even if no traffic passes through. This can be done by setting a default Idle session time interval while configuring an IPSec Tunnel.

This article describes how we can set default Idle Timeout for IPSec VPN tunnels in Cyberoam.

Scenario

Set the default Idle Timeout as 500 seconds for a Site to Site VPN Connection named Head_Branch. As a result, the VPN Tunnel will disconnect automatically if no traffic passes through the tunnel for the specified time interval.

Configuration

You must be logged on to the Web Admin Console as an administrator with Read-Write permission for relevant feature(s).

•   Go to VPN > IPSec > Connections and select the required Connection, for example, Head_Branch.

   Expand the Advanced Settings section and enable Disconnect when tunnel is idle. Set Idle session time interval to 500.
 
 

   Click OK to save the IPSec VPN Tunnel. 

The above configuration disconnects the Head_Branch tunnel after 500 seconds of inactivity.
