[Openvpn-users] TLS Netotiation fails.

 I would like to run a script when I get the following error
in the log:

------------< snip < -----------------

Aug  8 08:01:15 server823 openvpn[720]: TLS Error: TLS key negotiation 
failed to
occur within 60 seconds (check your network connectivity)
Aug  8 08:01:15 server823 openvpn[720]: TLS Error: TLS handshake failed

-------------< snip < ------------------

  Is it possible to have this condition trigger a script?

    I'm using tunneling (tun0), and for those remote client networks that 
don't handle the connectionless (UDP) carrier well, have to ping out to 
maintain the network link to our Openvpn server.  I'd like to pin down the 
reasons why TLS key negotiation occasionally fails, and handle each cause 
differently.   We have a wide variety of ISPs and network connections we 
need to deal with, and I'd like to have a solution I could make universal, 
across our 350 clients. 

   Is there a way I can cause the TLS key negotiation error trigger a script?
