Client VPN - Keep alive

We are using Windows builtin VPN-connection for Client VPN to Meraki.
Are there any settings / function for keep alive or reconnect in case the connection drops?
 
Thanks!

Unfortunately not, there is no timeout option. The session will only terminate once the user clicks disconnect or reconnect it.

 

If you want more advanced options, maybe you should use Anyconnect.

I am not a Cisco Meraki employee. My suggestions are based on documentation of Meraki best practices and day-to-day experience.

Please, if this post was useful, leave your kudos and mark it as solved.

I was afraid that this was the case. 😞

I think what you ask asking is - if the connection drops can you get it to reconnect automatically?

 

The answer is no for Windows client VPN.  As @alemabrahao mentions, you need something more advanced like Cisco AnyConnect to get that functionality.

Thank you for clarifying that.
