#9033: VPN Disconnection (mountain duck)

        Type:  enhancement  |     Status:  new
    Priority:  low          |  Milestone:
   Component:  core         |    Version:
    Severity:  normal       |   Keywords:  VPN, DNS, Connection failed
Architecture:  Intel        |   Platform:  Mac OS X 10.10
 When connecting to a server that is only accessible through a VPN, when
 the VPN disconnects, things become a bit buggy.

 The server will still appear connected

 If a finder window is open, it will freeze, and after a little while

 When clicking the network volume icon, will have a 'Connection failed -
 DNS lookup for damian-server.eecs.ucf.edu failed. DNS is the network
 service that translates a server name to its Internet address. This error
 is most often caused by having no connection to the Internet or a
 misconfigured network. It can also be caused by an unresponsive DNS server
 or a firewall preventing access to the network.' error message displayed.
 Clicking cancel through, does not stop the connection, the message will
 keep reappearing.

 It would be nice if there was an option to specify if a connection is VPN
 and treat it differently.
 For example, my VPN's security policy causes it to disconnect when it
 detects that is been idle for too long.
