Hi experts,

I'm in the process of creating an access database that will use a VPN connection to a remote SQLServer. Is there an easy way to install/deploy the VPN settings onto a users PC/Laptop without me having to talk them through setting up the VPN connection manually?

Thanks in advance

Are you running a Cisco VPN client? If so you can setup a profile on your PC the way you want it to be on the user’s PC. Then you can email him the .pcf file that is created. You can find the .pcf file under "C:\Program Files\Cisco Systems\VPN Client\Profiles". All the end user will need to do is go to "Connection Entries" and "Import" and select the *.pcf file and his client will be configured just as you had set it.

I'm using the native Windows VPN which was setup in the 'Network and Sharing Center' using the 'Connect to a Workplace' option

NCP has an Enterprise solution with a managed client and the Secure Enterprise Management Server. But it is only economical if you have a certain number of VPN users, like 50+ or so.
