Login network drive mount conditional to VPN connection.

Hello,

I'm setting up a Mac OS X for my wife and I have no experience (still more then her). The problem I'm facing is that I need an outside network drive to be mapped at login, but the VPN connection to that network must succeed first. Unfortunately the VPN login can't happen automatically since it requires the user to input the password (Cisco AnyConnect).
How can I accomplish this?

Thanks!
Jay

Hi,

not sure what you mean. I can connect to the remote network any time. The problem is that I can't do it automatically as the VPN client doesn't allow to save the password.

Thanks,
J

I found the solution myself. I wrote a little AppleScript that launches the VPN client, sends the password, waits for the remote network to be available and finally maps the drive.

Thanks anyway.
