Routes disappear on Openvpn server

VSUTech asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have an openvpn box configured by a previous administrator.  I have added a new route to the box for a new subnet created at the remote site.  Well, the route worked perfectly until a day ago when it disappeared from the routing table on the openvpn box.  I added it again and things were working again.

I read a bit on routes on linux debian boxes.  It appears the routes can drop if the interface is disconnected.  Any idea how to permanently add the route?
