    I have a VPN between 1 RV016 and 5 RV042s. I receive many of these notifications every day. Need help understanding what they mean. Does it mean that my connections are not stable?

    Sample:

    --------------

    Subject: branch1-RV042 Security Notification

    I have been told by Linksys that these log messages are generated by firewall. They have showed that ipsec packets have been approved to pass through the firewall to set up VPN connections.

    What is odd, is that they don't occur at regular intervals. Some of my connections will go quite some time before reporting while others report much more often.

    That is why I was looking at these things as error reports.

    Thanks.
