nailing up an ipsec vpn?

L4 Transporter

I have a site to site ipsec vpn between two Palo firewalls.  A always initiates the tunnel to B. Is there a way i can make A always keep the tunnel up even when interesting traffic is not present?

Hi @JimMcGrady ,


This was discussed before and this discussion is likely what you're looking for:


Setting up tunnel monitoring is probably the way to go.
