Description (partial)


Unfortunately,  the idle timeout value alone for VPN RA connections is pretty meaningless, especially with MS networking. Idle timeout does not mean the absence of application traffic, it means no traffic, period. This  includes the traffic w MS apps (networking, netbios, etc)... 

This is an enhancement request to alleviate this concerns, the ASA should have a traffic threshold option in addition to the idle timeout.  For example, if the data rate is less then 10k over idle timeout period then disconnect.
