There is documentation on the site that lists the steps necessary. You may
follow these steps verbatim or use it as a guideline, if you're familiar
with IPSECs workings. Go here:


Remember that tunnels will be brought down when their SAs expire and
there's no immediate traffic to bring it back up. Tunnel creation is
usually pretty quick (a second or two) so usually theres no issue with
rebuilding it after a drop. I wonder if it would be possible in the future
to add a "persistant" option that would cause each endpoint to ping the
other across the tunnel at predefined intervals. Honestly, I don't know
how useful that is, but its something to ponder. I guess.
