I have a NT4.0 based domain network running a logon script for all users from the replication dirs on 4 servers PDC and BDC. This works great, however I installed a cisco 3000 VPN and cisco client3.5 on NT 4.0 6A workstations at remote locations running over cable modems. I connect and can net use and do Exchange Email but I can not get the logon script to run. I have tried the start before option and few other posts I have seen here but no dice. Also has anyone used VPN on a machine that is logged in under a generic local user and then start your VPN session under a NT Domain authenticated user to access remote resources as the VPN user? I need to find the variable to pass to logon scripts in place of %username% as that passes the local user not the VPN logged in user. Any help would be great.
