-p
Reconnect to the server after connection termination. By default vtund will exit if connection has been terminated. This options is equivalent to the 'persist' option of config file.
-m

/var/lock/vtund/
Session lock files.
/var/log/vtund/
Connection statistic log files.
Format:
   Date Uncomp_In Uncomp_Out Comp_In Comp_Out
