RE: frequent vpn tunnel drops

I see this is a debug from an initial connection, I am assuming this
debug is from the concentrator, and after the first part of it you see a
"duplicate first packet detected" error.  This error means the client is
resending packets to the concentrator, but for some reason the ACK
packets that the concentrator sends out are not being received by the
client.  This could be because UDP port 500 is being blocked from the
concentrator to the internet, or ESP is being blocked.  

I would suggest turning on transparent tunneling using UDP port 4500,
this is called NAT-T in the concentrator.  This can be done in the
concentrator under this menu: Configuration | System | Tunneling
Protocols | IPSec | NAT Transparency.  If this is not an option then you
have the option above NAT-T that will allow your client to establish a
tunnel over any TCP port you configure in that same menu, the same port
will need to be manually configured on the client. 

There is one other option in the group configuration that allows the
client to connect over different UDP ports, this can be configured under
this menu:
Configuration | User Management | Groups, choose the group the user is
connecting to, click the "client config" tab and the third and fourth
option is where you can configure this.

If this does not work then send the debugs from the client side and we
can look at them.

Thanks!!

Subject: frequent vpn tunnel drops

hi all,
i am just stuck with this big problem and hav no clue
whatz going on!!i am into security monitoring of a
client and we have a VPN Tunnel through our VPN
CONCENTRATOR 3000 SERIES to their watchguard
firebox.The tunnel stays up for anything from 1 minute
to 2 days up and then goes down!!
Everything worked fine before 3 weeks ,but since then
its been frequent tunnel drops.i have logged the error
messages i get on my vpn concentrator to see if
anybody can help me with this.
Could there be a routing policy issue at their
end..which i doubt since it was working before!!and
since the tunnel comes up for variable times!!could be
a ipsec fragmentation issue!!??just wondering!!
thanks..below is the log
