Cisco VPN Client Host IP Disappearing

Hi all,

Users are periodically loosing the IP address out of their connection entry. The Host IP address just disappears.

The error they get is: Error 5: No host name exists for this connection entry.

This is happening to lots of users quite often.

Thanks in advance.

The virtual IP only vanishes if the VPN tunnel itself is closed. Maybe some idle time setting in your Cisco router?
I am experiencing a similar problem on two machines, which both happen to have Microsoft SQL running on them.  A third machine, which does not have SQL loaded, does not experience the same issue.  Becuase the IP and hostname dissappear, I must recreate the profile.  It seems to happen randomly, and I cannot figure out why.  I am running version 5.0.01.0600  IT seems to happen every one to two weeks, but again it is random.

A solution to this one would be great.

I believe that this worked, Qlemo -- I have tried it on a few computers and haven't had the issue any longer.

Since this only happens once in a while anyway, I'm not 100% sure that this is resolved... but with the profile file as "Read only" I don't see how it could disappear or be modified, and it hasn't yet.

I'm still curious as to WHY the IP address would vanish, but as long as my issue is fixed I'm happy!

Thanks!
Thanks!
