Randon Daily Disconnects from Ultimate Terminal Emulation Software Across VPN

lately our terminal emulation vendor has been pointing to our network stating that the network is causing these disconnects either due to packet loss or network disconnections.
we have been reviewing our logs from each site  and show no disconnections from any of the sites
network consists of Cisco firewall at Server side with Fortinet  vpn connections to each location
location can only see server side, like hub and spoke; no external location can see each other only server side firewall can reach location and vice versa
this has only been happing the last few months with server side vendor claiming its the network due to packet loss as this is what they are used to
we do not see packet loss above 1%
how can we determine the culprit?
tired of chasing ghosts on the network

Have you been able to figure out the saturation of the connection at the time the drops occur?

David ElebuteSystems ConsultantAuthor Commented:
when you say saturation, do you mean how much bandwidth is in use?

David ElebuteConnect With a Mentor Systems ConsultantAuthor Commented:
bandwidth has not been high or at maximum
just got message from site and they went down and our PRTG server shows unusually low bandwidth for this time of day

reviewing our Cisco firewall config at the hub of the network; with over 10 FB50B units at each remote site
I am leaning more towards an issue on the server side: Unix box with SSH term emulation through the vpn tunnels
