Sonicwall Global VPN Client Disconnect

I am running SBS2003 Premium Edition. I am using Sonicwall TZ205. My remote office is connected through Global VPN Client. Remote user disconnect several times during the day. Sonicwall MTU is set for 1400 MTU, but when I ping private and public address, I can only ping up to 500 MTU, if I ping above 500 I get request timed out. How can I fix this issue.

Hi Wizkid003,

I'd take a look and make sure your settings are correct for the VPN tunnel. Follow these steps & match the settings: https://www.fuzeqna.com/sonicwallkb/ext/kbdetail.aspx?kbid=7507. Once you have an operational & stable tunnel we can increase security past what the article explains.

Regarding MTU size...I'm not sure how you are checking that but take a look at this article. It will explain how to determine and change your MTU so it's sized appropriately. Here's a step-by-step: http://www.experts-exchange.com/A_12615.html

Let me know how it goes.

I change the MTU on the Sonicwall from 1500 to 1404 reboot and everything is working fine now.

Nice!

If you haven't done so already tailor your MTU by decrementing it by 8 starting at 1500 until you get 0% loss. Open cmd prompt and use 'Ping -f -l www.google.com 1500' to test. Here is a step-by-step: http://www.experts-exchange.com/A_12615.html
