+		string AuthErrorLimit
+			This value defines the amount of authentication errors
+			that are allowed before informing VPN agent to clear
+			the credentials in case there was a previous successful
+			VPN connection made within one hour. This is to be used
+			with providers that allow only one login from one
+			account at a time to prevent clearing of credentials

+			except OpenVPN that uses value "10". Setting value "0"
+			disables the feature for the provider.
 		There can be other properties also but as the VPN
 		technologies are so different, they have different
 		kind of options that they need, so not all options
