PPTP VPN Client Module

    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.
