 Subject:  WRAP Board 1.11 losing tunnels after several days
 Date:  Wed, 22 Jun 2005 17:12:37 -0700
Hello list,

 

I have been using two Wrap Boards and m0n0 version 1.11 for a Site to
Site IPSEC tunnel over DSL.  This has worked flawlessly for many days,
but then after about 2 weeks one of the boards stopped creating
connections.  Once I rebooted the board it created the tunnels again
with no problems.  

 

First, is there a reason it usually fails like this?  Is there anything
I can do to help it along?

 

Second, the sites are only open from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM and will
accommodate scripted reboots an tunnel re-establishments if necessary to
keep this system working properly.  Is there a way to script the units
to reboot at midnight and reestablish the tunnels as soon as the reboots
are complete?

 

Thanks,

 

Bill
