From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.9) Gecko/20061219 Fedora/1.5.0.9-1.fc6 Firefox/1.5.0.9 pango-text

Description of problem:
vpnc has the ability of sending out NAT keepalive packets at specified intervals. With vpnc, this interval can be specified using the command-line option '--nat-keepalive <Seconds>' or in the configuration file by setting 'NAT-Keepalive packet interval <Seconds>' The default however is not to send out these packets which causes vpnc to loose it's connection when running through certain NAT:s
  When using vpnc through NetworkManager however, there is no way of activating this feature. Could this be added as a configuration option or is there some default value that is reasonable? Through empiric testing I found that 45 seconds works well for me, but other NAT:s might behave differently....

Incidentally this version (0.7.0) supports NAT Keepalive and Rekeying interval.
You have to use gconf-editor to add them by hand to

 /system/networking/vpn_connections/<CONNECTION>/vpn_data
    Rekeying interval
    <interval in seconds>
    NAT-Keepalive packet interval
    <interval in seconds>

This bug should be closed?

BUT: See bug #229029 for the latest version...
Comment 2 Denis Leroy 2007-02-18 03:27:19 EST
Indeed. I'll look into making this option available from the GUI. Closing for now.
