Cisco VPN Tunnels

Hi experts,
Our ISP is planning an downtime of a core switch and we have about 14 remote locations that will loose VPN tunnels due to this outage. When the site comes back up, will the remove locations reestablish the vpn tunnels dynamically?

Let me know if you need more information.

Thanks,
Marek

They will re-establish when "interesting traffic" attempts to traverse the tunnel.  You don't need to manually bring up the tunnels.

Yes, as soon as they receive "interesting traffic".  Tunnels stay down until needed.

Will ICMP packets from our monitoring be considered "interesting traffic"?

How would I know, of find that?

JFrederick29Commented:
Here is a simple way.  What IP are you monitoring? The "inside" or LAN interface IP of the remote VPN device or the "outside" WAN/Public IP of the remote device?  If the inside, it's going over the tunnel.

I am actually monitoring the public IP address and some of the devices behind that using non routable IPs.

JFrederick29Commented:
Okay, well if monitoring non routable IP's behind it, it is going over the tunnel.
