"Configured Maximum Connection Time Exceeded"

I was working from home yesterday, and connecting to the office via VPN. In the past, this hasn’t been a big deal. This time, just as I was getting set up to start Something Important, the connection went down. Deliberately.

Secure VPN Connection terminated by Peer.
Reason 430: Configured Maximum Connection Time Exceeded.

Connection terminated on Sep 28, 2006 18:28:40   Duration: 0 day(s), 08:00.12

Good thing they bought a new VPN server to replace this one. Oh, wait; the new one’s still in beta, has been for months, and recently stopped working. Feh.
