Sophos XG firewall: SSL VPN disconnecting after 8 hours


SSL VPN connecting is disconnecting after 8 hours if user is using OTP authentication. If the user did not use OTP, then SSL VPN is not disconnecting.


Key life time in SSL VPN indicates that after every 8 hours, key renegotiation will happen.

Please look into the below screenshot of VPN settings

OTP will not be vaild for 8 hours, so SSL VPN negotiation fails. You can increase the key life to 10 hours or 12 hours, but it will compromise your network security.
