Only 10 seconds to enter VPN credentials

Hello,

I have a USG Flex 100 on which I have configured an L2TP / IPSec VPN with pre-shared key and identification on Active Directory.
This one works very well, with one detail:
If the user takes more than exactly 10 seconds to enter their credentials, the connection fails.

Does anyone have any idea where this might come from?

Here is what I get in the USG Flex logs:

Thanks for the suggestions!

    If you enter password more than 10 seconds, the VPN will be established failed? If so, it looks like timeout related with AD or clients.
