I want to make my OpenSWAN to restart the connection after a failure occured. 
My I put my connection to auto=start. But this does not seem to help. I also 
tried to use dpdaction=hold. No restart also.
kyingtries in not set. So it should be default (0).

Is there a timeout (rekey, keylife ?) when openswan tries to reconnect to the 
other gateway?

Does dpdaction=hold prohibit this?

Is there an other way to accieve what i want my gateway to to? Thanks.
