For my home server I use: A server with Pfsense 2.3.4-RELEASE (latest) as OS / firewall; An OpenVPN setup (the integrated Pfsense version) as TCP tun (additionally in an useless attempt to solve the issue I added reneg-sec 0;keepalive 10 120 to the Custom options under Advanced settings under the OpenVPN menu, and restarted the OpenVPN service). May 11, 2017 · Inactivity timeout (--ping-restart), restarting Although it looks like openvpn restarts up, it then blocks all internet activity until it is stopped and restarted. It also requires a restart of oscam as it blocks that channel for awhile. Even though I was always active whether browsing, downloading a file, or watching a video, it would always show a disconnect with inactivity timeout. I found the cause of this problem: in the firewall settings there is a toggle for allowing or disallowing 'ping from WAN' which means allowing or disallowing a ping from outside the router / internet.

(I'm on Windows 7 x64, "ping -t" just means ping until I ctrl-C) I don't understand why OpenVPN would be getting an "inactivity timeout", since I'm constantly pinging a machine on the work network.

Furthermore, when the session token is generated on the server, it gets locked to the VPN client’s connecting IP address. This session IP lock can be disabled, and the timeout for session inactivity and the timeout for total session duration mentioned can also be adjusted.
