slackware 14, vpn or iptables disconnect issue?
Hi, I have Slackware 14.0/3.2.29-smp stable and up to date computer running firewall from
Easy Firewall Generator for IPTables.
I had Slackware 12 but reinstalled to Slackware 14. I have house lan do static ip addresses
and everything connected wired and wirelessly works fine, with same rc.firewall from
Sometimes I need to work from home and have to vpn to work network. This all worked fine
for last couple years.
Since last time I worked from home I now have Slackware 14 and there is a new vpn client,
Cisco AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client Version 3.1.01065.
Now vpn is disconnecting about every 10 minutes and I have to reconnect.
I spoke with work help desk and they said to connect directly to isp by dhcp. This worked
fine with no disconnects. Network staff says everything is correct on their end and something
on my end is causing the disconnects. I checked the vpn client settings and there is really
nothing to configure.
What I need help with, what I'm asking for here is, is there something with Slackware 14
that might be causing the vpn disconnects OR is it something with new vpn client that I might
need to do something with iptables.
