Our work VPN connection is dropping intermittently. Sometimes it'll go 20x a day, other times weeks will pass by and no loss of connectivity. Apparently the cause of this is outlined below:
"Your L2TP client uses your internal address to create a unique tunnel ID. As so many users are using the 192.168.1.x subnet at home duplicated tunnel IDs are created and this causes the problem.
To rectity, you can change this to any internal subnet you like – 192.168.2.X for example."
We've been asked to change settings on our home routers to facilitate the VPN. Does this sound reasonable/usual or is the VPN just a bit rubbish? :)
