Auto connect to VPN when connection is lost
Posted on 2008-10-24
I have a SBS 2003 server (server 1) connection to a 2003 R2 Server (server 2) via VPN. The line works well, but occasionally the connection is dropped due to restart of the target server (Server 2).
I have checked the box (redial if line is dropped) in the VPN configuration, but this does not do anything, when the target server is restarted. Probably because of the long period of time (about 10 min.). Then we have to etablish the connection again manually.
Is there somewhere, where I can aks the connection to always redial?
If this is not possible I am thinking about making a script and make it run each 10 minutes from the taskmanager. This script shuld check if there is a connection - and if not dial up the connection. The script is probably pretty simple, but I don't know anything about making scripts. Can anyone help me?
