Hi,

I have a Cisco PIX 501 that establishes a IPSec connection to 4 remote offices runing Cisco Pix 501 and 515. The PIX shows that the connections are established and working and all test appear normal to reach each of the sites but one. Running a simple ping results in very intermittent connections.  Each of the other locations are showing good to all the other sites.

Any chance it's something in the middle that's dropping packets?  If the VPN connection is up, it should stay up.  Unless there's something in the debugs that indicates something's changing.  But it's not what I would expect to see.

No, not very likely.  The other offices are all stying connected without any issues and this office is staying connected with all the other offices except the one that has problems.
