Dear Kerio Support, Dear All,

I'm still evaluating Kerion Control. I was almost ready to purchase a license after my latest achivement - to use Kerio Control to connect to Windows Azure. However, even it was ok at the first look, it not seems to work for production envrionment.

Well, the connection is established successfully to "Static" Gateway, you can reach resources on Azure. Everything as it should be. However, five minutes later the conneciton is dropped down and redialed again successfully. In the log there is lot of repeating events:

[05/Dec/2015 21:23:59] TUNNELSTATUS(DOWN) firewall="xxx" hostip="" hostname="" name="Microsoft Azure" username=""
[05/Dec/2015 21:24:58] TUNNELSTATUS(UP) endpoint="yyy" firewall="xxx" hostip="" hostname="" name="Microsoft Azure" username=""
[05/Dec/2015 21:29:59] TUNNELSTATUS(DOWN) firewall="xxx" hostip="" hostname="" name="Microsoft Azure" username=""
[05/Dec/2015 21:30:58] TUNNELSTATUS(UP) endpoint="yyy" firewall="xxx" hostip="" hostname="" name="Microsoft Azure" username=""

clearly identifes that the conneciton is disconnect and connects again and again from the Kerio. Same time the same connections kept for monthes with Windows Server 2012 R2 RRAS and also StrongSwan. I assume, that this is related to settings like key lifetime and so on, which could be configured by ipsec.conf.

My question in this case: can we conigure ipsec.conf (or other settings of IPSEC Tunnel) in details, such as keylifetime and so on, as it seems to be required from industry's standard Microsoft Azure.

Thank you!

Best Regards,
Baguk

Well, my experiments continues. I got successfull and stable working VPN tunnel to azure by modifying file /var/etc/ipsec.conf directly. I know this is not the proper way, as the file is automatically generated by Kerio. For me was important to test if the "correct" ipsec.conf solves the problem and it obvisosly did. So my current question:

is there any documentation on winroute.cfg file available? I want to adjust this file corresponding way, so the right ipsec.conf will be generated. I tried to use keywords in it, but it seems to be ignored. Does anybody have idea about schema for winroute.cfg?

Thank you and Best Regards!
