Keep Dial Up VPN Tunnel up permanently

Hello folks,
I have the problem, that my remote-site does not use static-ip-adresses. So I can only use a dial-up-vpn-configuration. Some devices between the 2 VPN-endpoints are needing a permanent connection, but when no traffic goes over the tunnel, the tunnel will not "get up".
 
Is there a way, to keep the dial-up-tunnel up, although there is no traffic going over it? (keep it up permanently)

    Hi,
     
    Not sure if this is possible in Dialup VPN, maybe you can try to set keep alive enable in phase2
    config vpn ipsec phase2-interface->edit *interface*->set keep alive enable

    Good Luck

    You can do this from GUI if you want too (FortiOS 6.0). Just convert your Forti-to-Forti tunnel to a Custom Tunnel and once converted you'll be able to change it from Phase2 > Advanced > Autokey Keep Alive, check the option and clic OK button for save changes.
     
    It works for me this way ;)
