Hey there!

Were you seeing any logs on your Ubuntu server when the disconnect occurs that could provide more details as to why this is failing? You may want to check your syslogs as well. There may be more information on which side is closing the connection. You may also want to set dpdaction=restart and set dpdtimeout=to a larger value as well in your ipsec.conf file.

Hope it helps! Nate
