setup linux pptp client idle timeout


I have got pptpd linux server and pptp linux client which connects successfully.
Now I want setup idle time (inactive) in pptp linux client so that if the pptp tunnel is inactive say for example 5 minutes it will be automatically disconnected.
how can do that, is there any built in feature on pptp client?
or can do it in other way?

please help
