[Openvpn-users] keep alive traffic?

Hi all,

I got openvpn working between FC4 on my home LAN and clients on the  
outside (OS X and Windows XP). Thank you for making it available. I  
noticed that there is a lot of traffic even if the tunnel is not  
actively used, every 5 seconds, some 240 bytes. Is this normal or my  
setup is a problem? The most annoying part is that even if no tunnel  
is open, my gateway netscreen 5XT reports every 5 seconds that the  
VIP server is down, then up (filling up the log) suggesting frequent  
network activity of the openvpn server. I am not a network guy, so  
pardon my naivete. I'd appreciate any pointers.
