All,

Is it possible to have all my remote laptop users VPN to intiate at logon? At present we use Cisco VPN client, which needs to be started by the user when they want to connect to the network. We have found that we would prefer not only all traffic to come through our pipe but also the VPN to be on as soon as they turn the laptop on....thus stopping the problem of not controlling there internet access until they connect.....

Any thoughts?

Hi

It may depend on which version of the client you're using but try under options - windows logon properties - check enable start at logon. Then under options properties - check connect to the internet via - dialup and attach the microsoft dial-up networking entry to the dialup connection. Reboot - this should bring up the vpn-dialler, connecting should launch the internet connection. The tunnel should be established and then you should be able to logon to the domain etc,

thanks for this, ill give it a go, one further question though...99% of our consultants have (when at home) a broadband connection. Does the same theory apply? This connection use's there LAN adaptor, not a dial up connection

Hi

Yes it should - You should be able to configure the connection to broadband to be listed as a connection that the vpn-dialler can go through. It may depend on the connection type - my broadband is listed as a simple usb wan adapter - and the vpn client uses that no problem. The setup you want is exactly the setup I have to access my network from home. I use it so I can logon to my pc locally - ie no network connection, or use the vpn to allow me to logon onto our domain directly at startup and first logon.

Debsyl99,

Sorry, I dont get what his trying to do?  
Here's what I think, he wants a vpn connection to auto connect at startup or at logon?
Where does the domain come in?

Thanks,
Lynnton
