  • Cisco Pix IPsec help

    I have a Cisco Pix IPsec tunnel going to another Cisco Router with IPsec. The tunnel works however every so often I'll have to log onto the router and ping an IP for me to be able to see it remotely behind the PIX. Any ideas?

    Hi,

    It may be that the tunnel is timing out when there is no traffic going over it?

    If this is the case, try something like "Dead peer detection", basically a keep alive function that can help keep the tunnel open, even when there is no interesting traffi flowing over it.

    The router IOS command is:

    crypto isakmp keepalive 10 periodic

    Is probably the same or similar on the PIX... haven't used those for a while so can't remember!

    Hope this helps...
