What are your MTU settings set to ?? I was also having this prob and
found that I had to use an MTU of 1404 ... 1492 is ok for normal
internet traffic, but the extra overhead of vpn packets was pushing the
packets over 1500 bytes, fragmenting and breaking vpn ... set to 1404 it
all works ok !
Also check your SA lifetimes are set to the same, suggest something like

Hope this helps a little

Subject: [m0n0wall] VPN broken in current beta

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but here goes just in case.

I have m0n0 connected to a Cisco router and 2 Netopia routers via 
IPSec.  Since the last beta release I've been having the problem of the 
VPN getting disconnected (for whatever reason, could be timeout, could 
be internet issues), and then never reconnecting unless I reboot the 
m0n0wall, or go into the VPN settings and click "Save".  It then quickly

reconnects without issue, until it disconnects again.  With version 1.1 
and even the previous beta to 1.2b1 I did not have this problem.  
Nothing has been changed on the other ends for a LONG time.  Just 
thought I'd mention this.  Can supply logs if you want, although they 
don't say much because m0n0 seems to think it's still connected and 
never even tries to reconnect.
