I need a way to identify if a travelling user is connected to their local domain before running their login script.  This is to avoid installing software and updates across slow WAN links.

Perhaps identifcation by checking AD OU or subnet?


Cheers

Here's an example of a routine you could use in a .bat to determine the subnet by using the default gateway
 

 

for /f "tokens=2 delims=:" %%a in ('ipconfig ^| find "Gateway"') DO SET GW=%%a
if %GW%== 10.63.106.2 set GW=Location1
if %GW%== 10.63.106.130 set GW=Location2
if %GW%== 10.63.106.162 set GW=Location3
if %GW%== 10.63.106.194 set GW=Location4
