VPN client auto connection

Is it possible with 2000 or XP to start the VPN client connection before the user connection so the logon-script would autoexecute at start-up? I know that the options are there but the client isn't able to connect to the vpn concentrator and have it's certificate validate before going to phase 2.

I have been told that the vpn client need to access the certificate store but don't have the right to do it before the user is logon. Is there a way aronf that?


Re: VPN client auto connection

Automatic VPN initiation (auto initiation) provides secure connections within an on-site wireless LAN (WLAN) environment through a VPN Concentrator. When auto initiation is configured on the VPN Client, the VPN Client:

Becomes active immediately when a user starts his/her PC or when the PC becomes active after being on standby or hibernating

Detects that it is in an on-site wireless LAN environment (has a wireless network card installed, is associated with an access point, and has an IP address defined as requiring auto initiation)

Establishes a VPN tunnel to the VPN Concentrator defined for its network, prompts the user to authenticate, and allows that user network access
