Looking at the manpage for pptp there are:

       --idle-wait <secs>
              Time to wait before sending a control connection echo request.  The RFC2637 default is 60 seconds.

       --max-echo-wait <secs>
              Time to wait for an echo reply before closing the control connection.  The RFC2637 default is 60 seconds.

maybe that's what we want?
