Using Sonicwall VPN client to log onto a 2003 domain for the first time. I need the VPN connection up BEFORE I Ctrl-Alt-Del and supply my username/password/domain ID. I can join the laptop to the domain when logged on locally to the PC with the VPN running just fine. Join domain, supply admin and pass and reboot. Next Ctrl-Alt-Del screen, I put in jsmith with password and domain.com, but it will not see the DC because the VPN is not fired up. Any ideas?
In short, I need the VPN running on their current network connection (LAN or Wi-Fi or whatever) FIRST before I try and log on to the domain for the first time.
