I have a computer that i would like to automatically connect to our vpn after the user has logged in.

the link/connection has been created, and the proper credentials have been suppplied. how can the connection be established without human interaction? ie) not hitting enter, or clicking connect.

OS = windows xp pro

You can have IE/OE connect automatically by choosing 'Always dial my default connection' on the Connections tab in the Internet Options Control Panel applet. I'm not sure how that plays with VPNs, or if it applies to this situation. The user would be presented with a connection window, and would have to click "Connect" or press Enter. No way around that, that I'm aware of.

Thanks seeker,

I already have a shortcut placed in the startup folder, so the connection prompt is displayed, but i would like to have it connect without any interaction.
