Easiest way to run login script using VPN?

It appears that a VPN connection to a Win2k3Server domain does not execute the login script shown on the Profile tab for users in Active Directory. Is there a way to force this? Must I copy the script to the startup folder for each VPN client?
1 Solution
first, try the script or local pc
second, make sure the user has enough permission permission to run the script,

remember, logon and start up is two different thing

I had seen acox65807's reference before. It sounds like the login script hosted on the AD server cannot be forced to run when a VPN connection is made. If that is the final anwser, then using a script in the startup directory to rasdial the VPN and to connect network shares is the easiest solution. In that case, will putting the script in the All Users startup folder cause it to run for all users?
