Before connect or linking the link indicator is pink (warning, no link).
The program sends a link request on startup, so it should be default grey in 
normal cases.
A link is established on  connect or on link request/ack.

That is correct. Also because the server is only polling when the client status 
is missing.
The connection is kept alive by the server sending status packets.
A poll tells the client to send status only because it is missing.
