Was wondering if someone could clear up a definition for me about the Kerio Control VPN Client.
What exactly does the "Persistent Connection" mean in the VPN Client?
Does it mean it will automatically connect the PC at any time to the VPN? Or just if the link drops it will reconnect? (For example, when the PC reboots, does the client software reconnect the VPN or does the user have to reconnect manually).
The user manual for Control is a bit broken about this feature.

Users with administrator rights can also established so called persistent connections. Such connections are also automatically recovered upon each workstation reboot.
In this mode, once a user establishes a VPN connection, this connection is kept persistently. The Kerio VPN Client Service system service forces the connection to be kept even after closing the Kerio VPN Client and/or user logout, and it will be recovered automatically after the computer shutdown/reboot. Upon the computer startup, the VPN connection is recovered immediately, even before the user authenticates. Thanks to this feature, e.g. connection of the user to a remote private network domain is enabled.
For successful initiation and closing of persistent VPN connections, the user needs administrator rights for the client host (an account of the administrator type). Non-administrators can access only the remote private network if the VPN connection has already been established.
