I have some remote VPN workers who are experiencing a weird dropout problem with their Cisco VPN Client. At completely random times they suddenly lose connection to corporate email and intranet but not to their Novell mapped drives. The VPN padlock is still locked and they can still transfer files back and forth from their Novell mapped drives but cannot ping anything or connect to tcp applications like Groupwise or our Intranet. If I send a ping I see the packet being encrypted down the tunnel but nothing coming back. Users without the Novell Client installed never experience this problem and can stay connected to the VPN indefinitely. I have tried switching users from our ASA5540 to a PIX515E but the problem remains. There is nothing in the VPN log to indicate the problem and I have also sniffed the VPN adapter and again seen nothing causing this. I can find nothing on Novell or Cisco forums, has anyone experienced this and found a solution??
