If you have a "explicit-exit-notify 5" in your config of the client, the
disconnect command sends - who guess - a exit signal to the server and
there will be no incoming traffic from the server to the client.
Otherwise the server sends a ping  the client to see if the connection
is active.

Or something like that. :)
