OpenVPN repeatedly losing connections with inactivity timeout I’ve been seeing bizarre problems with my openvpn client (on linux) over the last couple of days. It would connect, and I could access the network, but the VPN would regularly restart itself and connections would be closed, seeing messages like Viscosity automatically detects network reachability problems on your computer itself, so for an "Inactivity timeout" to occur it means that the network drop out must occur either on the VPN server's end, or somewhere in between (such as a router losing Internet connectivity). (I'm on Windows 7 x64, "ping -t" just means ping until I ctrl-C) I don't understand why OpenVPN would be getting an "inactivity timeout", since I'm constantly pinging a machine on the work network. Looking at the logs interactively, it seems the drop happens *before* the above messages are written to the log, for some other reason, and the If you use a user-locked profile directly, the web-based authentication session is not done and authentication instead goes directly through the OpenVPN tunnel. Change the session token inactivity timeout. By default the OpenVPN Access Server will give an authenticated user a session token that will expire in 5 minutes if it is not actively used.

--ping-exit n Causes OpenVPN to exit after n seconds pass without reception of a ping or other packet from remote. This option can be combined with --inactive, --ping, and --ping-exit to create a two-tiered inactivity disconnect. For example, openvpn [options] --inactive 3600 --ping 10 --ping-exit 60

(old) Jul 24, 2018 · openVPN Server --> Inactivity timeout (--ping-restart), restarting « on: July 24, 2018, 11:19:48 am » Hello I have setup a openvpn server according to the "Setup SSL VPN Road Warrior" including TOTP.

The OpenVPN pushes the ping 600 and ping-restart 1800 (as a result of the keepalive statement) perfectly fine to the client. Disconnect reason is as quick as 40 seconds after connection on idling, reason: Session invalidated: KEEPALIVE_TIMEOUT. That does not make sense to me.
