Subject: [m0n0wall] mobile vpn lifetime


I have 2 m0n0wall boxes (one on my office lan with fix IP, and an other at
home with dynamic IP w. DynDNS domain name). I set up IPSec tunnel between
them using the new mobile vpn feature on the office side and tunnel mode on
the home side. It worked fine as long I used that evening, but by the
morning the connection was dead, no connection to machines on the otherside.
I think somehow expired. When I set it up, I left the "lifetime" field
blank. Practically it is not a real mobile/road-warrior config, but I want
solve somehow the dynamic ip problem. 
Questions: What is the default lifetime? how can I set it to never expire?
what happens when meanwhile the isp issues new ip? If I have to
re-initialize the vpn connection by pressing "save" on the Web GUI, it
doesn't solve my problem.
