Replication with encryption

Hi, We are using merge replication over an encrypted VPN connection. Encryption provided by "Checkpoint Software". Rarely, replication fails with "general network error" but physical connection is up all the time. It seems that bcp works better than regular merge replication inserts. What can be the cause of this problem? Is it a network latency problem? Is there any timeout that can be set at publisher or subscriber level? Thnx
