    VPN Timeout
    Ever since I installed Snow Leopard my L2TP over IPSEC VPN connection times out after between 30 and 45 minutes. The clock keeps running on the tray but the connection is lost. At that point I have to disconnect, wait a minute or so and then reconnect. I have heard there is a way to disable this. Can anyone point the way. I'm stumped. I hope I won't have to roll back to Leopard. Thanks.

    Its the L2TP over IPSEC. Its not the Cisco one. It does not give me the option of shutting down the Timeout function.

    I'll give it a shot as soon as I get home. Where do I find the network plist?

    I believe in Library/Preferences(/SystemConfiguration) - unsure of that last part. Deleting only creates a fresh one. I would save them somewhere in case they don't work and you can copy them back
