I am running RRAS from SP4, which I believe is the most current version, and
I still see this happen on a rare occasion. One line drops for some reason,
a telco break or whatever, and it will not automatically reconnect without
intervention. Fortunately for us, all our lines are monitored and its fairly
easy to get it to reconnect, so its not a big problem, but I can see where
in certain circumstances it could be. We run PCAnywhere on all the servers
so its a simple matter to connect from anywhere and reconnect the downed

Hope that helps.
