Ensure optimal peer settings are configured.
The default IPComp encapsulation is the most efficient. UDP encapsulation can be used strategically where it is not possible to configure Firewalls to allow IPComp or where it may be required in certain NAT scenarios. UDP Encapsulation in Bridge mode adds 8 bytes additional overhead and in Tunnel mode 28 bytes overhead per packet.
The time to wait before declaring a peer idle. If the timeout expires, traffic to the remote peer will be bypassed until the peer comes online. Peers detect each other with TCP Option 76. To trigger peers to come online, start a new TCP session.
