Hi All,

I'm using Visual Studio to create an SSIS package with a script task using script language Microsoft Visual Basic 2012 to open the vpncli.exe and connect to a server "000.00.00.000" with username "TestName" and password "TestPassword"

I'm having difficulties in sending keystrokes to the app, the app looks like dos. For example the steps that I put in is as follows:
Open vpncli.exe
>connect "000.00.00.000"
{enter}
"TestName"
{enter}
"TestPassword"
{enter}

I need this script to automate my login.

Regards
