How to Push CIsco VPN Client

Hello,
Nornally I use remote installation w/ GPO to push out software to my LAN but with the Cisco VPN software it requires the software to be installed locally. Here is my question, if I run a script to pull the software from a network drive to the local drive, the users do not have admin rights to install to the local drive. How can I achieve this and install the software without going to 50 laptops and installing it in person?

thanks

Hi,

I advise to use SSL clientless VPN, remote users connect via HTTPS page, no additional client need

First of all you need to do an unattended version of the CIsco VPn client

Silent Installation Using MSI
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/vpn_client/cisco_vpn_client/vpn_client500_501/administration/5vcAch10.html

-> Or try to modify the MSI with "Orca" as well.

Also check:

After that you can install the application very quick in the 50 laptops.

I am not a windows server admin:

But there is not a tool that actually if the computers are in a domain you can auto install certain software automatically?

Well I can use Group Policy to push it out, but I run into the issue of them ( the user) having the rights to install it. Some programs works some like this one doesnt

OK using a batch file, I've copy the folder from the network to the C Drive and ran your slient msi command. Do you know if there is a way to auto config the setting for the Cisco Client?

Do you mean the profile?

Just copy the profile to/from
C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\profiles>
