My MacBook Pro's VPN disconnects two minutes after it connects. I change the account and I had no luck with it, Any ideas?

When it connects do you get an active connection to your internal resources? –  hobs Apr 26 '11 at 11:40
    
Anything in the system log? Open Console in the Utilities directory. Select FILES, system.log in the left pane, and type 'pppd' in the search box. The right pane will show the log messages for VPN connections. –  JRobert Apr 26 '11 at 14:24
    
@hobs : yes, I have an active connection. –  AliBZ Apr 27 '11 at 11:18
    
I would try also to connect via a third-party vpn app, to see its behavior. Viscosity is my favorite. Although it costs $9, it has a 30 days trial so you can see if it works. –  nuc May 3 '11 at 7:43
    
Do you have access to the vpn endpoint logs? That should be a good starting point. –  joet3ch Aug 12 '11 at 21:09

Under the built-in client, this is solved by:

setting the following on the VPN custom connection:

a) "lifetime time 24 hours;" or more
b) dpd_delay 0;
c) proposal_check claim;
