Out of interest, what is your connectivity between sites on the tunnels? ADSL, Cable, Leased Line
and what providers?
I am still no further forward with my issues but would be interesting to see if there is any common
I have a few ideas I want to test on my sites, but i'm not going to get a chance to do that until
later in the week.

Looking at the recent messages on this list, and my own experience, it
does start to look like some problems with VPN tunnels seems to have
crept out of the woodwork somewhere recently..

As mine is a m0n0 one end and a router the other, and has been normally
very stable, after either 1.3b13 or 1.34b14 things seems - somewhat
rather less stable.

I unfortunately don't have any data prior to this, as it was so little
of a problem I had no monitoring in place, but since the stability
issues started, I've put hobbit in place, and this "pings" the remote
side of the VPN to check for VPN "aliveness".

What I've noticed is that the VPN will be very stable for around about 2
weeks, then things go to hell until the m0n0 is rebooted.

My m0n0 has been up 11 days now, previous was 15 days, and I am
wondering whether I will experience major instability in the next 3-4
days - if I do - it will most certainly be a pattern.

I will keep the list notified.
