F5 remote VPN connection timeouts

Hello all, I work remotely from home and establish connectivity with my employer through an F5 SSL VPN connection. My client PV runs Vista and I have a linksys router. If there is no activity on my desktop for around 60-90 minutes the VPN connection is dropped and any remote applications I was working on at the time are locked by me because of the unexpected disconnect.

I am trying to write a simple script to keep the VPN alive but I can't determine what type of activity it expects to see. First I wrote a script to send myself an email through Outlook via the Corporate Outlook server. Then I opened a web-page every so often, that doesn't work. Next I will try to open their intranet page but does anyone know what exactly defines network activity in a situation like this?
