Will FileMaker be able to detect and warn about a lost connection to remote host?

We have a filemaker application where we have to use VPN to do data entry on our database on FM 12 server remotely. We found that some of data was missing probably due to a lost internet connection. What does FM do when we have a remote file open and the system drops the network connection it has. I havenot received any warning or message from FM about the missing connection. I thought it makes more sense for the VPN to issue the warning about the lost connection.

 

On FileMaker server, it say that FileMaker server sends no email notifications for web publishing errors or warnings, which is not the same thing as the VPN access to FileMaker server. I can see some analog between the two.

 

Here comes the question. Will FileMaker be able to detect and warn about a lost connection to remote host? What happens to the data entered? Is it lost in the air?
