Cisco VPN :: RV042 Tunnel Inactivity Disconnect

Oct 16, 2011

I have VPN Gateway to Gateway VPN tunnels set from my central office to four remote sites. The tunnels have always been problematic. Started out with five Linksys RV042 v2 devices these had problems with handshake, sometimes would disconnect during this process and had to click disconnect button on either device and this wouold force the tunnel to rebuild. Recently upgrade central device to a Cisco RV042 v3 device. Good news is that this seems to have corrected the handshake issue but now each of the remote sites are having problems during periods of inactivity losing tunnel. The staff at the remote site indicate that they have to close out application and restart router to rebuild the tunnel.

All tunnels are Gateway to Gateway static IP addresses. They all will connect and behave as expected until they reach a certian period of inactivity. I have searched all over Cisco, Linksys, and Google have seen problems similar but no consistant or logical solutions so I thought since I am slowly upgrading my network from my initial equipment which was truely purchased based on cost alone to adding more Cisco equipment. However since this is among the first of my upgrade moves and the improved equipment is creating more problems than my older less expensive equipment I needed a solution to the problem before submitting additional PO's to upgrade switches and firewall products.

Cisco VPN :: ASA 5510 / VPN Tunnel Drops Due To Inactivity?

Dec 12, 2011

I am using a Cisco ASA 5510. Our tunnels always drop due to inactivity, which is a security issue I understand, and it only takes some "interesting traffic" to bring it back up. My problem is that it looks like the interesting traffic has to originate from my side of the tunnel, when our clients send traffic and the tunnel is down due to inactivity it does not come back up. Is there a setting that I am overlooking that will make it come back up no matter who sends traffic? Or, is there a way to make it stay up through inactivity?

Cisco Routers :: RV042 Quick VPN Does Not Disconnect

Mar 3, 2011

we bought a router for our company RV042, so far good
What i did:
1. i created QuickVPN clients, droped in certificate which exported from router
******NOTE********All company's laptops are running: Windows 7pro 32bits****************
The users are connecting sucesefully to router and using resources from server etc...
But, when they press disconnect on quickVPN it shows disconnected, but when i log in into router, i still see that they are connected (not disconnecting),
and the problem is they cannot connect to router second time if i don't manually disconnect them from rv042 router....
Only sometimes the clients disconnect properly from router, but it is very very rare...
Question1: Where I should look for the problem in router rv042 or client laptops?
Question2: Does the 64bit windows7 pro OS can connect to RV042router?
I have latest quickvpn software and latest router firmware.

Linksys Wired Router :: VPN Tunnel Disconnect Between RV016 And RV082

Jun 2, 2011

Currently I have a VPN tunnel setup between our company locations. Location A has Linksys RV016 and Location B has RV082.  Everything has been working with no problems for the past 2 years with only minor disconnect issues in the VPN tunnel between the locations.
For the past 2 weeks I have been running into issues with the Tunnel. Users in Location B are reporting problems with losing connection to applications that are hosted in Location A. At first I start with doing a ping to router address in Location B and I get "request timed out". Next I login to router in Location A and under VPN I notice that the VPN tunnel is not disconnect (I see disconnect button). Once I click on Disconnect the screen refreshes and that seemed to restablish connecting with router in Location B. The drop connection has been been going on for the past 2 weeks and only happens once a day specifically between 1 PM and 3 PM EST. I have been reading all over the internet and no luck at all. The VPN tunnel settings are the same on both routers and under Advanced options both Keep Alive and Dead Peer Detection (DPD)  are checked.

Cisco VPN :: RV042 - Cannot Route Traffic In The Tunnel

Jun 6, 2011

I have a two RV042 VPN Router, I successfully connected the IPSEC tunnel. I cannot route Traffic in the tunnel. See the diagram.
MAIN Network 
RV042a     WANa       <<------------------------------->>    WANb    RV042b
 a.a.a.2                                                                            b.b.b.b 
In this manner the network of b.b.b.b wil connect to the Main Network 10.252.x.x, unfortunately I can't pass traffic to RV042b going to RV042a. Everytime I trace the route, the traffic goes outside the Internet not to RV042a.

I don't know if this is in the right section, but I cannot set up a vpn tunnel between an asa 5510 and a cisco rv042 router. I believe the problem is because i need to set up a nat exempt rule on the rv042 route but don't know how.

Cisco Routers :: VPN Tunnel Between 2 RV042 / SSH Drop Packet

Dec 14, 2011

here's my setup :
office 1 :
rv042 hw3
ISP:Obtain an IP automatically
office 2 :
rv042 hw3
VPN tunnel between both rv042, everything's fine but when i try to ssh from office 2 to an office 1's server, my connection drops.
When it drops, i can still ping pc in office 1, this is really strange!if i change the office 2 ISP to another provider (obtain an IP automatically) everything's ok !
i try to use another PPPoE ISP for office 2 and it's doing the same thing!I've also tried other rv042 in both locations with the same setup and it's doing the same thing, so it's not a router issue.
i've tried older firmware and it's doing the same thing, so it's not a firmware issue!

Cisco Routers :: RV042 - VPN Tunnel Between Two Remote Locations

Jun 27, 2012

I have configured a VPN tunnel between two remote locations using static IP addresses on two RV042 routers. The tunnel seems to work but the problem is that when the two hosts attempt to ping each other only one can successfully ping. One PC with IP address can ping across the network but the second PC with IP address cannot. These are laptops seperate from the intranet used to test the tunnel. Someone had suggested NAT may be the issue so I enabled NAT Transverse on the routers but still no luck. The following is the results from a ping test.

PC 1
Pinging with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from bytes=32 time=116ms TTL=63

Aug 5, 2011

We have 4 RV 042 routers and  cisco router at HQ, we have Site to Site VPN tunnels in between, All branch offices are connected to HQ via S2S VPN tunnels 24 HQ Branch 1 Branch 2 Branch 3 Branch 4
now lets say i am branch 1, i can access network but cant access network, means i dont have branch to branch connection, it should be through HQ, means my RV042 at brnach  should fwd all traffic to HQ for another branches also. Under VPN tunnel if i try to configure remote destination its not allowing me it says network overlaping with local network, how i can sole it, I know how to do in cisco, we can permit those networks in access lists.

Cisco Routers :: RV042 Hangs On Reset If VPN Tunnel Is Established?

Sep 15, 2011

I was hoping that the latest firmware would fix my (2) 'bugs', but it did not.  We are using the RV042s at our remote medical clinics as an end-point VPN router to our Nortel 1700 VPN router, replacing our old Nortel Contivity 100s.When I try and do a reset when connected remotely via the WAN interface, the RV042 hangs and will only reset by re-powering.

Cisco VPN :: RV042 / Establish A IPsec Tunnel To A Large Organization

Jul 18, 2012

I have a client that needs to establish a IPsec tunnel to a large organization. They will not forward any traffic to an IP using private reserved IPs. However I am not finding another way to accomplish this. I tried ipsec to the router and using a second IP to a 1:1 Nat but it will not pass the traffic and would seem really insecure from the public internet. 1:1 Nat does work from the public internet but not over the tunnel.I have an RV042 a /29 block of IPs. I am at a loss of how I can accomplish what they want without allowing a private IP.

Cisco Routers :: RV042 To RV082 Tunnel / NAT-T And Slow Performance?

Feb 18, 2013

I have an RV042 VPN tunnel with an RV082.The RV042 has a public IP Address obtained by PPPoE, the RV082 has a public IP Address obtained via Static IP.The problem I see is a really slow performance. Both internet conections are idle and the performance is about 2 or 3 kbyte/s My question are if I should I enable any of this:

- Agresive mode
- NAT Traversal
- IP Compresion
- Dead Pear Detection
How can I troubleshot this slow performance?

Cisco VPN :: PPTP Tunnel To Linksys RV042 Not Working Through 2620 Router

Jan 9, 2012

I have a remote location that has a Linksys/Cisco RV042 router [URL] that allows PPTP connections based on username and password combinations. There are no intermediary routers between this device and the internet - only a DSL modem. A secondary WAN connection is not present.
I am able to dial into this VPN using the Windows XP and Windows 7 dialers from any of my local free-wifi locations(e.g. Starbucks). I WAS able to connect to this VPN connection from my house when my home router was a Buffalo brand router.
I have replaced the Buffalo router with a 2620(non-XM) that is connected in ROaS fashion to a 2950 switch. I need some guidance on what in my config is not allowing me to connect to this remote site.
Home network info: Local subnets : 192.168.x.x
Remote network info: Local subnet : 10.214.x.x
The Windows XP dialer client indicates that the username and password challenge is where the connection fails. It ultimately gives me the error code 619. I have performed a Wireshark packet capture of an attempt to connect from ip This packet capture shows multiple "Configuration Request" packets being exchanged between the two endpoints, but does not ever show an exchange of authentication.
My nat translation table shows an entry for both a GRE tunnel as well as port 1723 between and the WAN port of the RV042 when attempting to establish this VPN.
I have attached my 2620 configuration for your review.

Linksys Wired Router :: First And Second Location RV042 - VPN Tunnel Configuration?

Jan 14, 2011

Setup is two dynamic IP locations

1. first location RV042 is the gateway attached to ADSL modem

2. second location RV042 is behind BT home hub gateway - for now the BTHH DMZ is enabled to the RV042
Followed the user manual config for two dynamic IP but it seems that the RV042 behind the BTHH obviously has a different IP than the resolved IP and is causing problems with connection.

This from the log file:
Jan 14 15:04:16 2011    VPN Log   Received Vendor ID payload Type = [Dead Peer Detection]
Jan 14 15:04:16 2011    VPN Log   [Tunnel Negotiation Info] <<< Responder Received Aggressive Mode 1st packet
Jan 14 15:04:16 2011    VPN Log   Aggressive mode peer ID is ID_IPV4_ADDR: ''
Jan 14 15:04:16 2011    VPN Log   No suitable connection for peer '', Please check Phase 1 ID value
Jan 14 15:04:16 2011    VPN Log   initial Aggressive Mode packet claiming to be from on

But no connection has been authorized,check peer ID Is there some way of making the RV042 behind the BTHH properly identifiable to the other end?

Cisco Firewall :: ASA 60 Minute Inactivity Timeout?

Feb 15, 2013

We had an issue the other day where doing backups through the firewall (don't ask) caused the "control" session to timeout while the backups were still going on over the "data" connection.  This broke the backup about two hours into the job.  My first thought was that the backup solution vendor should implement some kind of tcp keepalive for the control connection.  A packet capture showed they indeed were --  after 2 hours!  Ah ha!  Busted!  How could they choose such a poor choice of TCP keepalive timer for their application that would not be compatible with the 60 minute inactivity timer that so many firewall vendors use (Cisco, Juniper, Checkpoint and Fortinet all use a default 60 minute inactivity timer for TCP)?
Well, a colleague of mine pointed out that there is actually an old RFC that covers this.  RFC 1122.  It says:
Keep-alive packets MUST only be sent  when no data or acknowledgement packets have been received for the  connection within an interval.  This interval MUST be configurable and  MUST default to no less than two hours.
Now I know that RFC is old (October 1989), but that's all I could find.  Is there something that supercedes that?  Maybe common sense perhaps?  I understand not wanting to fill up your connection table because of mis-behaving applications, but I'm just looking for ammunition to use against the backup solution vendor.  Surely they're going to point to this RFC.

ASA(config)# timeout conn ?
configure mode commands/options:

  0:0:0 | <0:5:0> - <1193:0:0>  Idle time after which a TCP connection state
will be closed, default is 1:00:00
  <0-0>  Specify this value to never time out

Linksys Wireless Adapters :: WET54GS5 Not Accessible After Inactivity?

Apr 15, 2012

I hadn't used this device (version 1) for a couple of years.  After that much time and many changes in my home network, once again I need it to connect a printer.  I pushed the reset button and followed the initial setup directions.  So far so good.
Then I followed directions for using it on my network.  Also good.  I can access the bridge's web server and I can send jobs to the printer.
My problem is, after a period of inactivity (say, over night) I can no longer access the printer or the bridge.  The only way I have found to get them back is to power-cycle the bridge. Some data ...
My router is a WRT320N.  It manages DHCP and reserves a fixed IP address for the bridge.The bridge connects to a wireless network managed by an Apple Airport Extreme 802.11.  It is connected directly to the router.  Yes, I have two WiFi networks.  No, I have not yet tried the bridge on the router's network.The LEDs on the bridge are the same, accessible or not.The printer is an OKI c3400n.

Cisco Wireless :: 1260 Root AP De-authenticating WGB Clients After 6 Minutes Of Inactivity

May 27, 2013

i have 2 1260 Access points one is in root mode , one is wgb mode. Authentication is EAPFAST. There are 5 devices connected via WGB bridge to the rest of the network.

- If clients are sending some data , then WGB AP announces this client mac via IAPP to root AP and rest of the network sees them correctly
- If clients are "passive" , then after WBG AP announces them to root AP , they timeout after 6 minutes on root AP and obviously they are not pingable from the rest of the network. The only way to restore connectivity is to ping that device from WGB AP, then WGB AP announces via IAPP to root AP , then and only then they become visible from the rest of the network.

My question is related to this 6 minute timeout on root AP . Is it normal behaviour ?
