Posted on 2008-06-09

Hey experts,

I am using Cisco VPN Client, and I am always getting disconnected after 4 hours.
Is there anyway for me to do to keep the connection time longer?

As I understand, there are two types of Time-Out set for a VPN user session,
Idle-Timeout (e.g.0.5 hr) and Maximum Session-Timeout (4 hr in my case).  
What I want to solve is the latter one.  

Do you have good suggestion on that?

You have to check what the settings are on the ASA to which you are presumably connecting.  It could be configured to only allow a 4 hour connection.
