Hi,


I want to know if there's a way to let VPN client automatically establish a VPN connection to my Cisco VPN concentrator without any manual interruption after rebooting the PC ?


I mean it's fully automatically initiate a vpn connection based on some certain script or ini file with username & password inside, you don't need to be onsite to input username and password.


Thanks,


Jerry

You can make one *.PCF file and that you can put into Profile folder.


Now, As of username = you will give that everytime come only put password and connect to VPN.



Here is the format:

[Main]

AutoInitiationEnable=1

AutoInitiationRetryInterval=3

AutoInitiationList=ChicagoWLAN,DenverWLAN,LaramieWLAN

[ChicagoWLAN]

Network=110.110.110.0

Mask=255.255.255.0

ConnectionEntry=Chicago (points to a connection profile named chicago.pcf)

[DenverWLAN]

Network=220.220.220.0

Mask=255.255.255.0

ConnectionEntry=Denver (points to a connection profile named denver.pcf)

[LaramieWLAN]

Network=221.221.221.0

Mask=255.255.255.0

ConnectionEntry=Laramie (points to a connection profile named laramie.pcf)

I got you.


But you have to let somebody input the password, in our scenario, this PC is a in a remote office without any people inside, nobody can input the password for establishment of this VPN connection.


Any idea ?
