Remote Desktop session disconnect over SonicWall VPN

   I have a scenario where we have remote location connecting back to the main office via SonicWall VPN connections.  One of our main application run via Remote Desktop services on a server in the main office.  The VPN tunnels themselves do not drop, but if the RDP session is idle for a little while the session will close.  The session does not close at all while the app is actively being used.  This does not happen for clients at the main office.  

  Any assistance will be appreciated.  

Thank you
