    I am having trouble with the vpn connection pptp closing after a short time period. It connects fine but anywhere between 1-5 minutes pptp states:

    No response to 3 echo-requests
    Serial link appears to be disconnected.
    Connect time 1.4 minutes.
    Sent 0 bytes, received 0 bytes.
    Script /tmp/pptpd_client/ip-down started (pid 1443)
    MPPE disabled
    sent [LCP TermReq id=0x2 "MPPE disabled"]
    sent [LCP TermReq id=0x3 "MPPE disabled"]
    Script /tmp/pptpd_client/ip-down finished (pid 1443), status = 0x0
    sent [LCP TermReq id=0x4 "MPPE disabled"]
    Connection terminated.

    Connecting to the same vpn server with windows is rock solid, dd-wrt is flakey sometimes drops after 1 minute, othertimes after 5 minutes... either way it doesnt stay up for long, its not an idle timeout either as i ping the other end of the ppp link to test it. Are there any settings i could try or any pointers so i can start looking for the fault?
