I have a ubuntu server which should keep a connection to itshidden.com VPN through PPTP. Somehow, connection dies once in awhile and following lines appear in /var/log/syslog:

My /etc/ppp/peers/itshidden file is:

pty "pptp vpn-pay.itshidden.com --nolaunchpppd"
name itshidden
remotename PPTP
require-mppe-128
require-mschap-v2
file /etc/ppp/options.pptp
ipparam itshidden
defaultroute
noipdefault
persist
maxfail 0
lcp-echo-failure 10
lcp-echo-interval 5
user "*********************"

Any suggestions?

Also, lcp-echo-failure/lcp-echo-interval parameters seem to not be working, since I don't see ppp resetting.
