Microsoft VPN connection - dropping automatically after a period of time
Posted on 2004-10-21
I wonder if anyone can help. I've set up a VPN connection from a webserver (Windows 2000 advanced server) to our network (2 different locations) via remote desktop.... If I log into the webserver, set this connection up and then DON'T log off the server, but rather just shut the remote session down, this should keep the connection up.
Set the settings under Local Security Policy - not to automcatically logout sessions.
I've changed the VPN settings so it doesn't log out after a period of inactivity.
Set the VPN connection to automatically redial if line is dropped - this doesn't work.
and still it disconnects after a period of time! We must have this has a permanent connection.
Can anyone recommend a way of setting this up & also how can we set it to bring the connection back up and connect it if the server reboots?
Many Thanks & look forward to your replies.
