ssl vpn login

is there any time limit for ssl-vpn email 2nd factor authentication?

eg. i enable email OTP for user, how much time does the system need to accept the token password before the login is expired?

i enabled email OTP for one external user that is overseas, by the time he accept the email OTP. 

he encounter permission denied -455 error.

can i extend the duration limit for users to enter their OTP password ?

You can set this up as a global setting. The below commands will change it from the default of 60seconds to 120seconds.


config system global

two-factor-ftk-expiry 120 << This is for the physical token two-factor-ftm-expiry 120 << This is for the mobile token

two-factor-sms-expiry 120 << This is for the sms token two-factor-email-expiry 120 << This is for the email token
