Softether client stops periodically

Post by raimonb » Tue Apr 02, 2019 8:21 am

Hello All,

My softether client is set to reconnect if connection is lost.
However, sometimes i wak up to see that one of my server clients has lost connection and does'nt reconnect unless I go phisically to the said computer and log in again.

This is the last info in the server log from MYCOMPTUTERIP, which is the pc that keeps losing connection:

2019-04-02 08:59:05.938 On the TCP Listener (Port 443), a Client (IP address MYCOMPTUTERIP , Host name "(...)", Port number 61049) has connected.
2019-04-02 08:59:05.938 For the client (IP address: MYCOMPTUTERIP , host name: "(...)", port number: 61049), connection "CID-4506-E5C94875E4" has been created.
2019-04-02 08:59:05.968 SSL communication for connection "CID-4506" has been started. The encryption algorithm name is "RC4-MD5".
2019-04-02 08:59:06.017 Connection "CID-4506" has been terminated.
2019-04-02 08:59:45.985 [HUB "VPN"] Session "SID-BH-HOME-550": The session has been terminated. The statistical information is as follows: Total outgoing data size: 153917791 bytes, Total incoming data size: 1986710614 bytes.
2019-04-02 08:59:46.010 Connection "CID-4488" terminated by the cause "The VPN session has been deleted. It is possible that either the administrator disconnected the session or the connection from the client to the VPN Server has been disconnected." (code 11).
2019-04-02 08:59:46.010 Connection "CID-4488" has been terminated.
2019-04-02 08:59:46.010 The connection with the client (IP address MYCOMPTUTERIP , Port number 62434) has been disconnected.

I know that nothing was done on MYCOMPUTERIP, that justifies losing connection. Maybe connection to the internet could have been lost, but then it shouldn'r reconnect, should'nt it?

By the way, when establishing connection i see the following:
2019-04-02 09:27:32.518 [HUB "VPN"] Session "SID-BH-HOME-557": The parameter has been set. Max number of TCP connections: 2, Use of encryption: Yes, Use of compression: No, Use of Half duplex communication: No, Timeout: 20 seconds.

Max number of TCP connections: 2 may be the problem or it shouldn't affect? I don't know what this maximum exactly means.

ANy ideas?

Many thanks!!

If the session ends, such as when the server session is deleted, reconnection is not performed.
