Logon Scripts & Wireless

Posted on 2003-11-26

Hi,

When the users logon to the network with a wireless connection, Windows sends the user & password to a RADIUS server that authenticates the connection with the Access Point. This process takes a few seconds, enough to not to allow the login script to execute.

How can I make that the login script gets executed?

Note: Because of internal security restrictions in my company, I can't use machine authentication against the RADIUS, so that is not a solution for me. And if it's posible, I don't want to copy the login script to the startup folder of the clients.

Thanks in advance.

Hi AndresM,
Have you considered using a scheduled task, set to launch when a user logs on?
This way you could leave the logon file on the server and launch it from there, while still being sure that it launches after they logon.

Hope this helps!

thanks for your response

the problem with a schedule task is that it requires an user & password, and what I need is that the login script get executed in the context of the user logged to the system

Hi AndresM,

If you go through the task scheduler wizard, it will provide an option for "When I log On". It will also ask for a username and password, but these shouldn't be required for a logon script.
(It will require you to use a username to be able to click next. Instead of using a specific name, use the variable
"%username%" without quotes.)
Don't put a password, and then you should be fine.

Hope this helps!
