Client doesn't tell server when disconnecting

Description

Hi, I setup scripts to get notified on connection/disconnection of my clients.
When using the windows openvpn client, the disconnection script won't launch upon disconnecting.
It will launch only after a timeout of about 220 seconds following the disconnect request, OR if I reconnect the same client.

BUT.
If I use the iPhone client, the disconnect scripts is launched right after disconnection. So it has to be something with the windows client.

I suppose you are using UDP. If so, add --explicit-exit-notify to the client config. Otherwise a udp server will have to wait until the ping-timeout interval to know that the client is gone. The iphone client may be setting this option by default.
