iLO over VPN

We currently have quite a few remote sites connected via T1. We have just started connecting a couple of sites with a VPN. The problem I am having is all of the sites work great using iLO except the VPN sites. When I connect via iLO, I connect a virtual media, DVD/CDRom, and it disconnects after approximately 2 minutes. This doesn't happen with all of the other sites. I can remote console in to all of the sites without a problem. Can anyone stear me in a particular direction. Note, we use all HP servers and Cisco comm hardware.

Hi ,

Unfortunately You haven't mentioned the Server You have and the kind of ILO.

So I am shooting in the dark, but if You have a ILO 2 board, i suggest You to update the FW of the ILO. The latest version is 1.50

Here are the fixes:
Addresses certain issues involving poor virtual media performance.

Corrects a problem in reconnecting via the Virtual Serial Port after the first
session is terminated.

Remote Console Acquire button.
Reduces the time required to mount a USB key larger than 4 GB.
Resolves an issue with the appearance of the Remote Console button and options
after a minimum resize of the remote console window.
Corrects a problem where iLO 2 loses its IP address under certain circumstances.
Resolves an issue in launching the Virtual Media applet from with the Blade
System Configuration Wizard.
Resolves an issue in using the CLP to change the 'oemhp_powerreg' property.

the XML file contains only one port to change.
