Description Matthew Saltzman 2007-11-28 23:50:27 UTC
Description of problem:
There is an issue with recent vpnc releases (in particular, the one in Fedora 8)
where connections are dropped fairly regularly by the dead-peer detector.  See
bug #345281.

The workaround is a parameter in the config file for vpnc to adjust the DPD
timeout or turn it off, but there is no way to specify the option for a
connection in NM-vpnc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect using NM-vpnc.
2. Wait.
Actual results:
No way to set options in VPN connection editor.
Connection drops.

Expected results:
Options for vpnc can be set in connection editor.
Connection persists until terminated.

I rolled disabling the DPD timeout into the recent rewrite of the vpnc plugin UI
bits.  Its in upstream trunk now and will hit Fedora with the next update.  I
don't have a way to reliably test this outside of just switching the value on
and off (our concentrators do OK with DPD) so if anyone can build from SVN and
see if it works, that would be great.

Should be long-fixed; please re-open if it's not.
