    I've just started to use the PPTP client module to tunnel my remotely hosted VPS back to my home network.

    After two days, the VPN died and didn't restart.  I use the System/Service Status module to restart failed services.  Has anyone used it to restart a failed VPN (using something like Remote PING)?  What command does WebMin use to bring the VPN up?  Even after I killed the PPP process that was running, I believe a lockfile was left behind (WebMin still had a Disconnect button, but not a Connect button in VPN).

    To make a long story short, I want to write a script that cleans up WebMin's VPN connection, and reconnects.

    Has anyone done this?

    Did you ever have any luck with this? Got a similar need here to make Webmin's VPN connections reconnect after a disconnect.
