Force VPN connections when user logs into computer

I have a number of laptop users who I would like to have automatically connect to our company VPN whenever they connect to a network outside of our corporate network.  To do this I figure I would need something first to detect if a network connection was present, second to determine if it was on our local network and then third to start a VPN connection if the network is not local.  The laptops are all running Windows XP Professional and using the Cisco VPN client.  They connect into our ASA for the VPN connection and use RADIUS authentication via one of our servers.  Is it possible to use a script or is there program capable of doing this?

I imagine a batch file or VBS could easily do this.
I would suggest using the scripting, MSDOS and automation TAs for this question.


I hope this helps !
