View Full Version : [ubuntu] OpenVPN and keepalive

November 3rd, 2008, 07:21 PM
Hi all,

I have upgraded to Intrepid, and I love the new networking capabilities, since it supports my Wireless 3G card. Under Hardy, I had a working hand-crafted OpenVPN configuration. Now I am trying to use the network-manager tool to do the same thing. I am able to connect, but the VPN gets dropped quite a bit, presumably because I am connecting via a satellite connection. Once connected, I can keep the link up by running a never-ending ping through the VPN.

I think an increased value for keepalive might keep the connection going, but now with the network manager configuration, I have no idea how to set it. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
