Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 490093
Last modified: 2010-11-25 15:34:06 EST
Description of problem:
VPNC disconnects after 1 hour, probably due to rekeying not being properly handled as the ipsec lifetime attributes, as sent by the concentrator is 3600 seconds.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the vpn connection using vpnc
2. Wait for the ipsec lifetime
VPN is disconnected
Official Cisco client works fine.
Level 3 debug file available on request.
Please report the problem upstream at the https://lists.unix-ag.uni-kl.de/mailman/listinfo/vpnc-devel mailing list.
Can you please reopen this bug? Phase2-rekeying still doesn't work in Fedora 14 while there is support for it in upstream SVN (see http://www.unix-ag.uni-kl.de/~massar/vpnc/). I've tried to recompile SVN version into rpm (just replaced tar.gz in source package with the one I got from SVN) and after commenting out line 3099 in vpnc.c it works just fine. I hope for better review, though - I'm not a programmer.
