Re: continuous ping through vpn tunnel

A standard ping won't have any effect on the traffic or tunnel. Unless this is an on demand tunnel that goes down when no traffic is passing and then negociates up on demand. In that case putting the ping into effect will keep the tunnel up. But that does not hurt anything.
