Hi

I have set up several vpn connections to different companies. These can be seen in the network connections area inside the control panel.
I have put the username and passwords in so when you double click on the icon and then press return it will connect automatically.
Once i have done this i then run a batch file which connects certain drive letters to  remove shares on a server. I then do a remote backup for disaster recovery purposes.

I would likle to do all of this automaticaly, ie.
connect to company 1, run the first remote backup batch job.
disconnect from company 1
connect to company 2, run second backup batch job.

is there anyway of doing this in one big batch job. I do not know how to start the vpn connections atuomatically.

You may be able to create a single batch file in which RASDial creates the connection, and then the rest of the same batch file would have your mapping and batch file commands. I haven't used RASDial but it is often used to automate dial up or VPN connections, often as a scheduled event. (l\thanks to prueconsulting for the link)
