    Dear @PeterUK

    We observed VPN disconnection log messages. Regarding the topology, could you please provide details on the VPN300's site-to-site VPN connection with which destination device? Thanks.

    It seems there is an intermittent issue on the VPN300 with firmware version V5.37(ABFC.2). Confirming through packet capture, UDP 4500 is observed on LAG0 but not on LAG1 over the bridge, and this problem is resolved by rebooting the VPN300. If this issue persists, it may require further investigation or contacting the device's support for potential firmware updates or resolutions. Sports accessories and equipment

    Yes that is correct @Nicholas185

    So the connection goes like this for site to site:

    VPN300 Ge4 DHCP to > Nighthawk M2 Mobile Router EE ISP in IP passthrough > in on my virgin media throughout VPN300 bridge setup > to FLEX200 DHCP WAN on SFP

    the VPN300 as a bridge allows all traffic its reason is to BWM for all USG downstream from it

    10 days uptime it happened again

    Would the team like to check the LAG0 in LAG1 out as to why port 4500 is not being forwarded as I will leave it in this state should it not fix its self for checking thanks.

    Small update test I did but the problem is ongoing I did a UDP scan for 4500 https://www.ipvoid.com/udp-port-scan/

    and that goes through so its very odd why the true VPN connection for 4500 is being blocked

    Hello Peter,

    May we know if there have been any ADP blocked messages, such as UDP flooding or others?

    I don't see any ADP blocked messages and I tried disabling ADP but didn't fix the issue

    Currently its in a loop at some point my EE 4G will change IP out CGNAT so that might cause it to start working?

    capture before getting to LAG0

    and my 4G IP changed to 31.94.60.122 with the VPN up and running fine.

    some type of problem that the LAG bridge stops forwarding port 4500
