VPN Connection works but disconnected every 5-10 minutes?

Hello everyone,

I am kind of new to the OpenVPN so I am appreciated if you could extend your patience with me :D
I installed OpenVPN Access Server on Ubuntu Server 18.04 headless box.
Everything went well. I created user and test the connection: All good
However, I have noticed that the VPN connection was not quite stable at all, and get disconnected every 5-10 minutes even the connection was active all the times. For example, once established the vpn connection, I use Microsoft Remote Desktop app on a Macbook Pro to connect to a Desktop PC, running Windows 10 Pro. It worked for about 10 minutes and disconnected. I have to force-close the remote desktop session, disconnect the VPN, reconnect it again, and run the RDC again...

What do you think I am missing in this configuration? Or, what should I tweak the OpenVPN Access Server to keep the connection a little stable, longer than 10 minutes?

Thank you very much for your advice
