I have a Sonicwall 3060 firewall with VPN capabilities. I also am using the Sonicwall Global VPN Client on some of my mobile users' laptops.
I have seen before on a friends' laptop that they were able to connect to a VPN and login to a domain from the Windows login screen. They hit ctrl-alt-delete to bring up the login window and then for the "Log on to" drop down list they had 3 options. One was local login, one was domain login, and one was a domain/vpn login i think.
Basically what I am getting at is this....Is there a way (and how do I do it) to configure my laptop users' machines to login to the domain through a VPN from the windows login screen? I do not want them to have to activate a VPN connection after logging in locally (or even after using cached credentials and their domain login).
