mapped drive via vpn

I have an XP PC and occasionaly I connect to a Firebox/VPN server to get to a hub that has our ptp network. When I use this VPN connection I need to map or connect to a drive that's on the network. If I use MS Word prior to mapping/connecting the drive it remains "not accessable/invalid drive letter" until I drop the connection, reconnect and connect that drive first. I can browse the drive and access it with anything else but word, so it's local to word. How can I initiate a script when I start the VPN?

Not sure if you can do it all in one.  All I can suggest is connect to vpn, then create a batch file that does the drive mapping and run that everytime you use it.

Unless of course you have a VPN client that has command line options.  Not sure about the windows vpn connections, have never tried to run it via command line.

for your mapping,

Net use s: \\{Path to resource} or whatever drive letter you need.
