Question PPTP VPN connect automatically (auto dial home)


Hi there,

I have servers in remote locations where I have no control over the network routers or firewalls. I need to have a VPN connection to my servers.
Is there a way to create a PPTP VPN connection automatically? I don't want to initiate it, I just want it to phone home, and keep phoning home if the connection is dropped.

Any help or suggestions appreciated.

I would suggest that you have a look at reverse ssh tunneling.
There is plenty of information available on the web.
This site shows a script for a cron job that will maintain a connection.
