Either use the domain group policy or a policy on the container where all the user accounts are stored to specify a login script. Then specify this vbscript:

Server = "MyServer"
Share = "MyShare"
Set objWshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")      ' Create object for executing programs
objWshShell.run "\\" & Server & "\" & Share & "\" & "authenticat.exe"      ' Execute the program
Set objWshShell = Nothing      'delete the object (clean up)
WScript.Quit      ' Exit script

Change this
objWshShell.run "\\" & Server & "\" & Share & "\" & "authenticat.exe"
to this
objWshShell.run "\\" & Server & "\" & Share & "\" & "authenticat.exe RA[192.168.1.10]"

well the script works i know this because if i run it from the local computer it works but i still cannot get it to excute at logon  I am just testing this with my account so in AD under my profile tab and then in the logon script box i have \\ncdlc\1\new.vbs  (ncdlc is the server name, 1 is the share name for the folder that the logon script and the authenicat.exe is stored)

Server = "NCDLC"
Share = "1"
Set objWshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")     ' Create object for executing programs
objWshShell.run "\\" & Server & "\" & Share & "\" & "authenticat.exe RA[192.168.1.10]"     ' Execute the program
Set objWshShell = Nothing     'delete the object (clean up)
