PPTP VPN Conneciton Dropping
Posted on 2006-11-10
I have a SBS2003 setup with one client using his laptop that is already part of the domain to connection remotely via the included SBS VPN software. I create a new connection on his laptop and enable all users to use it so he can select it from the logon screen.
Anyway, the VPN connects fine, but he is always disconnected after anywhere from 10-30 minutes. Last time he was disconnected after 22 minutes. There is no timeout limit and it wouldn't matter anyway since he's active when he is getting kicked off the connection. He has to log off/log on to restore the connection. The connection is set to "reconnect if disconnected" but it just doesn't do so.
By the way, the router there is a Symantec Gateway Security 360.
Any ideas? I'm going over there tonight to sub out the router for a new one. I hoping that fixes the problem, but I doubt it.
