Bug Description

Binary package hint: vpnc

With both 10.04 and 10.10 I was seeing a consistent occurrence of vpnc disconnecting after 7.5 hours or so. I see a message about disconnected by peer. There are numerous coworkers who have seen the same issue.

From this web page discussion: http://lists.unix-ag.uni-kl.de/pipermail/vpnc-devel/2009-October/003285.html

I pulled a version, vpnc 0.5.3 r449-2, and commented out the line as suggested in the web discussion, and I can connect w/o drops (I've been connected over 12 hours at times).

The web discussion mentions some re-keying issue.

Is it possible to incorporate this, or some equivalent fix, into vpnc?

Thanks!

In my case the rekeying happens every 60m and then the connection is gone. It is a serious flaw and should be addressed.
