Is there a way with racoon to turn off the lifetime setting (i.e. never re-negotiate either IPSec or IKE tunnels once they have been created)?  Not setting a lifetime value defaults negotiation for both phase 1 and phase 2 to 8 hours, and setting it to zero also seems to end up being 8 hours. 

 

This is for some lab work so the reduction in security is not an issue for me.
