Description David Juran 2007-01-23 18:31:24 UTC

Description of problem:
vpnc has the ability of sending out NAT keepalive packets at specified intervals. With vpnc, this interval can be specified using the command-line option '--nat-keepalive <Seconds>' or in the configuration file by setting 'NAT-Keepalive packet interval <Seconds>' The default however is not to send out these packets which causes vpnc to loose it's connection when running through certain NAT:s
  When using vpnc through NetworkManager however, there is no way of activating this feature. Could this be added as a configuration option or is there some default value that is reasonable? Through empiric testing I found that 45 seconds works well for me, but other NAT:s might behave differently....

Incidentally this version (0.7.0) supports NAT Keepalive and Rekeying interval.
You have to use gconf-editor to add them by hand to

    Rekeying interval
    <interval in seconds>
    NAT-Keepalive packet interval
    <interval in seconds>

This bug should be closed?

BUT: See bug #229029 for the latest version...

Comment 2 Denis Leroy 2007-02-18 08:27:19 UTC
Indeed. I'll look into making this option available from the GUI. Closing for now.
