[Samba] Flaky connection

Good morning all,

We use Samba over a VPN to mount a remote share on a local machine.
Local clients then connect to that. From time to time the connection is
lost, causing the local clients to hang.

Is there any way to unmount the remote share, or drop the local
connections, after a given timeout? My other idea was to have a script
regularly ping the VPN connection and unmount the remote share if the
connection fails.

Thanks in advance,
Tom Weissmann
