Windows 7 and Client 5.0.05.0290 Starting before log on...

Threaded View


Is it possible to get this client to start before logon? In XP, there
was an option for that. Now installing on Windows 7 it is gone. I have
several new Windows 7 Enterprise (32Bit) users that I would like to
set this up.

We are running into issues with Mapped drives and such that isn't
working as we need.

TIA.

He's talking about the Cisco VPN client, and no it won't start before logon
on either Vista or Win 7. And from what I've seen Cisco has no plans to
update the client to work with these. You'll need to move to Cisco's
AnyConnect, something I have to do as well.

If you don't any joy with the official VPN client, you might be able to
get the Shrew VPN client to start automatically on boot.

I should think it would be a matter of creating a service that runs

'ipsecc.exe -r "name" -u user -p pass -a'

[or a cmd script with in]

on boot. You may like to think over the implications of something
connecting into your network without prompting for authentication,
especially if it's movable like a laptop.

Ok, thanks. I had started looking at AnyConnect as I have a 64Bit User
that was going to push me in that direction, but I didn't (and still
don't) really have the time to look at implementing this right now. I
will push this to the back burner then for now. Thanks again.
