Dynamic VPN with Sonicwall fails after a period of time

Jump to solution

I have a couple of NetVanta 3120 routers that are used in homes for IP phones to a main office.  The main office uses a Sonicwall.  The VPN connections are dynamic due to the lack of static IP addresses at the employee's residence.  The VPN works fine when first connected, but after  a period of time, the VPN LED start slow flashing green.  I can no longer pass traffic through the VPN, but Internet is still working fine.  Simply shutting down eth 0/1 and bringing it back up will cause the VPN to reconnect when interesting traffic is presented.

While flashing slow green, I ran some commands to view the IKE SA and IPSEC SA.  Results are listed below.  Any insight would be greatly appreciated:

Not at this time. Adtran Engineers working with Sonic Wall engineers were unable to pinpoint what was causing the problem. We ended up putting another NetVanta 3120 at the main site. The problem went away.

- The slow flashing green VPN LED usually signifies that phase 1 has successfully negotiated. However, based on the output you provided, it appears the VPN is up and should be passing traffic.

Is anyone from the Sonicwall side able to ping the LAN IP of the 3120 while it is in this state? When you do a ping in both directions are you seeing the TX and RX bytes increment? This can be seen by issuing the "sh crypto ipsec sa" command before and after the ping.

Could you post your configuration as well as the output to "show interface" for us to look at?

Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks,

Noor
