Hi @Johnjoshua ,


For the site to site VPN there no idle timer.  Just the re-key timer.

As for GlobalProtect VPN connection the idle timer is by default set to 180 minutes if I'm not mistaken.


Hope this helps,

Hi All,


How to keep the tunnel idle time out as zero, so that our VPN tunnel will not go down even if no traffic.
