From my experience the VPN is not automatically established if it hasnt been
used before (ie a reboot of the mono etc). It will only re-establish itself
once  a VPN based subnet is required. I have watched my syslog output the
IPSEC connection only just as I ping the remote subnet

hope someone can help me with the following problem. I connected
three sites A, B and C with an IPsec VPN. I searched the archives, but
didn't find a solution.

Site A (m0n0wall)and site B (d-link di-804hv) are auto-reconnected
when the connection is down (option in d-link vpn router) and are
working just fine. The problem is that the IPsec VPN between A
(m0n0wall) and B (m0n0wall) doesn't come up automatically. After a
ping from one of the m0n0wall's on the LAN interface to the other
subnet(diagnostic menu; no response offcourse) the connection is up
for some time and drops after a period of time (not the lifetime for
phase 1/2...I think).


The subnets do not overlap!
VPN settings m0n0wall:
phase 1:
- aggressive
- blowfish
- sha1
- DH-key 2
- lifetime 28800
phase 2:
- blowfish
- sha1
- PFS key 2
- lifetime 3600
