Login into Windows using VPN remotely.

With Windows VPN you can logon directly into Windows with CRTL+ALT+DEL and select the VPN connection.  Is this possible with non-windows VPN?  Cisco or Sonicwall for example?

As they are not RAS connections, and I have never seen it work in that manner with Cisco or with my working with sonicwall I would answer it is not going to work in that manner.  

But it doesnt necessarily need to except you lose the GPO push as you cna log in with cached profile.

I don't think this is possible.

However, I think Cisco VPN client v5 supports this feature (VPN start before logon)
