    Ah, thank you for clearing this up as I wasn't aware of that.

    This makes sense.

    Let me then take this and change my question a little. What I am trying
    to do is have a server automatically VPN in, backup some files, and then
    disconnect. In order to do this, one of the options is storing the

    to, I have to). So, what would then be the best way to setup for this
