VPN logon script when connection initiated

Hi,

I would like a VPN connection to run a logon script when connected. Currently when a  user logs onto the domain locally, it runs a logon script where it maps some network drives. The logon script is initiated in the user profile in the login script section in active directory.

Does this happen when a vpn connection is made? or would you be able to map some drives automatically?

Not easily.

If you are using windows xp, users can connect to VPN prior to logging on to computer.  Then the scripts will run automatically.

If not, you can create a script to run the Cisco VPN from the command line and then map the drive.

I was thinking that you were using Cisco to provide a VPN connection.  My bad.
