It's a good idea to reconnect after the peer terminates the connection; my ISP will terminate long sessions. With Type=forking and Restart=on-failure it should reconnect automatically (not verified yet, I'm expecting to verify it after 4 days).

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.

netctl 1.11-1, from ArchLinuxARM actually. But it is the same for x86_64.
This task depends upon
