Is there a way to automate a script to run after successful login to the Cisco VPN Client

I need to have a script run automatically once a user connects via the Cisco VPN Client ver 4.8.02

Basically, the script runs normally for users in the office, it maps network drive and a host of other things.
VPN users need to access these network drives once they successfully connect to the company network over the VPN.

Is there a way of automating the script so that the script runs after successful login with the Cisco VPN Client.

Here's a method I could think of...
Click Options/Application Launcher
In there call a batch file that contains the mappings, etc that you need.

Otherwise, you might try Options/Windows Logon Properties - Enable start before logon.  That way their logon script should still run if they sign into VPN beforehand....

Instead of using the VPN Client to connect and then running a script, create a script that calls the VPN Client

Example:

vpnclient connect profile our_vpn
net use [your drive mappings]
etc...
