VPN Logs off internet connection using MN700

OS is Windows XP Professional
Using laptop Dell 600M with internal wireless card
connecting through Microsoft MN700 Wireless router
connected to Sprint DSL modem.
All updates have been downloaded for the MN700.

The VPN client (Cisco Systems) when I tunnel into my
server at work keeps logging me off remotely saying the
following:

"Secure VPN Connection terminated locally by the Client.
Reason 412: The remote peer is no longer responding."

This happens approximately every 5-10 minutes.

My IS Department mentioned something about making sure
that the hardware (router) is configured for IP Sec pass-
through.

Does this make sense? I don't see where this option is
located. Help. Thanks.

Dear Andy,

See if this post from two days ago helps. I have not
surefire solution outside of "joker"'s responses. (Read
from bottom up). It's clear from your error message that
the VPN client is quiting because the connection with
your business server is being cut-off. Probably by the
ISP.

Good Luck!


-------------------------------------------

Your ISP terminated your PPPoE connection. So you are
going to need to set an "Maximum idle time" feature. (I'm
not sure of the exact procedure on the MN-700 as I have a
MN-500 which has a different Web interface.)
On the MN-100 & MN-500 it is measured in seconds I'm not
sure about the MN-700. So the 500 I mentioned would be
about 8.3333333333333333333333333333333 Min.

THe PADT is sent by you ISP to save them money because an
open Internet connection costs them money & since it
isn't being used they feel like they can terminate the
connection. Most likely in the agreement you have with
them they have permission to do this.

Also make sure the Router is set to use Auto reconnect
when you use the "Maximum idle time" feature or whatever
they call it in the MN-700 web interface.
