    Hi @Darshil,

    The Inactivity time out for the GVC is not available.

    GVC works in Aggressive mode VPN and the IKE session keep alives ( usually in the form of ESP packets received at the firewall) are sent from the client every few minutes.

    If we implement the Inactivity timers for negotiated connections where the keep alive traffic is for the link and not the endpoints this will cause unreliable and distrupitve connections . No Current firmware version supports this feature.

    But we can control the session time out with the help of IKE Phase 1 and 2 timers, and also with the help of DHCP session limits ( by reducing the DHCP lease time out ).

    Hi @Darshil,

    As mentioned by Saravana, we do not have idle time out for GVC. But the lifetime value can be Increased or decreased based on your requirement.

    Thanks & Regards,
