I have a web server that exists outside our office and it needs to access a database in our office.  The obvious solution is a vpn connection between the two machines.  easy enough.  But how do I establish the connection as a persistant connection so the web server can access the database.  I can log in and start the connection but when I log out, the connection drops.

Any ideas?
