Get Started with OpenVPN Connect. OpenVPN Connect is the free and full-featured VPN Client that is developed in-house. It is the official Client for all our VPN solutions. Any other OpenVPN protocol compatible Server will work with it too. Our desktop client software is directly distributed from our Access Server User portal.

The keepalive interval is the period of time between each keepalive message that is sent by a network device. This is always configurable. The keepalive retries is the number of times that the device continues to send keepalive packets without response before the state is changed to "down". Keepalive on higher layers. Since TCP keepalive is optional, various protocols (e.g. SMB and TLS) implement their own keep-alive feature on top of TCP. It is also common for protocols which maintain a session over a connectionless protocol, e.g. OpenVPN over UDP, to implement their own keep-alive. Other uses HTTP keepalive keepalive-timeout (integer | disabled; Default: 60) Defines the time period (in seconds) after which the router is starting to send keepalive packets every second. If no traffic and no keepalive responses has came for that period of time (i.e. 2 * keepalive-timeout), not responding client is proclaimed disconnected: mac-address (MAC; Default: ) Solved: We have VPN's from remote locations using Cisco 861 routers back to an ASA and some to another IOS based router. Wanted to find out what is the best way to keep the VPN's active. We are using "ip sla" feature, but is there Sometimes, I need to restart my OpenVPN server. When I do that, all my clients lose connections and won't automatically reconnect once the server is up again. I'd like to know if there is a way that makes the client restart the connection e.g. after 60 seconds, if the connection is down and keeps trying until it gets connected. Tunnel keep-alive set interfaces openvpn vtun0 keep-alive interval 10 set interfaces openvpn vtun0 keep-alive failure-count 3 The above settings will send a keepalive packet every 10 seconds, and reset the tunnel after 30 seconds (interval * failure-count).

In order of having OpenVPN always on a smartphone, keepalive values have to grow, right now the default value 10 120 will drain the battery quickly: schwabe/ics-openvpn#100. I suggest setting 1800 3600 for keepalive in OpenVPN. Please close this issue if there is a reason against this setting. Regards,

Options, examples, and everything you need to get you started. This default will hold until the client pulls a replacement value from the server, based on the -keepalive setting in the server configuration. Hi, I have a question regarding a piece of documentation : "When the tunnel is configured to operate in IPSec mode, the keepalive parameter must be disabled. By default, keepalive is disabled."

keepalive-timeout (integer | disabled; Default: 60) Defines the time period (in seconds) after which the router is starting to send keepalive packets every second. If no traffic and no keepalive responses has came for that period of time (i.e. 2 * keepalive-timeout), not responding client is proclaimed disconnected: mac-address (MAC; Default: )

Hi, the openvpn(8) manpage contains the following text:. 1587 For example, 1588 .B \-\-keepalive 10 60 1589 expands as follows: 1590 1591 .nf 1592 .ft 3 1593 .in +4 1594 if mode server: 1595 ping 10 1596 ping-restart 120 1597 push "ping 10" 1598 push "ping-restart 60" 1599 else 1600 ping 10 1601 ping-restart 60 1602 .in -4 1603 .ft 1604 .fi One of my vendors has a VPN connection to us and the VPN keeps going down. They have suggested that we should do a ping ever minute to keep the VPN up, but the problem is the normal ping command is going down after a re-boot or gets closed by accident. The keepalive option is always added to an OpenVPN server configuration. There are many scenarios where this is not wanted and will prevent the required behavior. In my case, when working with iOS VPN on demand rule-driven behavior, the keepalive had to be removed (by commenting out line 453 in openvpn.inc). The Keepalive option ensures that a new SA is negotiated even if there is no traffic so that the VPN tunnel stays up. To enable Keepalive - Web-based manager. Go to VPN > IPSEC > Auto Key (IKE). Select the Edit icon for your phase 2 configuration. Select Advanced. Select Autokey Keep Alive. Select OK. To enable Keepalive - CLI. config vpn ipsec Hi Guys, Does anyone if we could have the feature to set the timeout or keepalive (cisco ios) in Meraki? Or anyone have this issue? I have client who is running a report and it got cut off as if just won't come up the reports after 10 minutes. I call Meraki and again "Make a Wish". Not sure if thi
